Pride poured out of Hatfield Swimming Club after five of their swimmers made an impression at the British Championships.

Held at Ponds Forge in Sheffield, the club had James and Jess Woodward, Ashley Ransome, Charlotte Williams and Caitlin Hartley all in action while there were a number of others with connections to the pink-hatted team.

Hartley edged the plaudits thanks to personal best times in all of her races, taking her to the breastsroke finals over 50m, 100m and 200m.

She placed fifth in the priority Paris final for the 50m and the same position in the B final over 100m.

Her best result was third in the B final of the 200m, placing her 11th in the British rankings.

James Woodward qualified for the A final in the 200m butterfly, eventually finishing seventh.

In the 100m priority Paris final, he was sixth.

Ransome qualified for the B final in the 50m breaststroke, finishing fifth.

All the results and performances left Hatfield's newly appointed head coach, and 2012 Olympian, Daniel Fogg, very pleased.

Shanon Stott also swam for Hatfield at the meet, although she is currently training at the University of Nebraska.

She placed eighth in the 200m freestyle, seventh in the 200m butterfly, eighth in the B final of the 100m butterfly, with her crowning glory being a bronze in the 400m freestyle.

There was success too for a number of former Hatfield members.

Nathan Hughes, currently at Swansea, placed third in the 1500m freestyle, while Luke Turley, who is currently at Bath Performance Centre, became British Champion in the 400m free.

That swim that also saw him chosen for the British team heading to the World Championship in Fukuoka this summer.

Hatfield are always looking for the next generation of swimmers and have frequent trials.
