After the all-weekend four session competition, coach Karen Kelly said: “The swimmers enjoyed an excellent two days of swimming. Some of our younger swimmers were competing in events they had never swum before but took it in their stride.
“To bring back three best in age group awards and a large medal haul was pleasing but more importantly was the experience gained and times posted in a 200m and above competition.”
