St Ives Swimmers Thomas Sprawson, Olivia Brown, Tiernan Stevenson, Isobelle Moore, Harrison Pearson, Caitlyn Brown, Tom McNeill, Marli Taylor, Elliot Megginson, Roise Stevenson, Oliver Dickson, Olly McNeill, Millie Taylor, Michael Wilden, Ruby O Dell, Max Lucas, Grace Iddon, Alfie Everett, Anna Gallagher, Emily Quayle, Tessa Quayle, Adam Wallis, Amelia Dunn, Alfie Reeve, performed superbly against strong opposition to upset the applecart and walk away with top honours on the night.

Well executed starts, turns, finishes and swims,  after the swimmers had been drilling rigorously for the competition beforehand,  made a huge impact on their performance on the night. A brilliant and heart pounding night of competition and fun was had by all swimmers, parents and myself!
