SOUTH Lincs Competitive Swimming Club were victorious in the second round of the National Arena Swimming League at Deepings Leisure Centre to add to their win in the first round in October.

The Spalding club had 21 first places, 12 second places and nine third places out of a total of 50 events – a fantastic achievement. There were also nine personal best times on the night.

A club spokesman said: “Every single member of the team swam brilliantly and contributed to a wonderful night of swimming.”

Chloe Hannam started the night with a first place in the 100m individual medley winning by more than three seconds.

She then joined forces with Bethany Walker, Philippa West, Emily Blackbourn, Cheryl Wilson and Donna Wilson to win the 15 and Under and Open relay races.

Not to be outdone, the boys 11 and Under relay team of Matthew Gray, Ryan Horrocks, Tim Moore and Jamie Reeves won freestyle and medley races, as did the boys 15 and Under team of Harry Bumfrey, Reggie Reeves, Jordan Templer and George Wensor.

Individual wins came for Serena Leadbeater, Chloe Hannam, Jordan Templer, Harry Bumfrey, Reggie Reeves, Cheryl Wilson, Emily McCann, Jamie Reeves, and Rebecca McKenzie.

Reggie Reeves was involved in a thrilling race against a Corby swimmer in the 15 and Under 100m butterfly – it was neck and neck all the way and resulted in a dead-heat.
