Hatfield Swimming Club's fabulous start to 2023 shows no signs of slowing up after more success - this time at the East Region Championships.

The event was held over three weekends at Luton and Norwich and Hatfield sent a large number of qualifiers to compete for the various age group and distance titles.

In total 36 of the competing clubs won medals during the competition and when the smoke had cleared, Hatfield were sixth in the medal table, claiming 14 golds, 11 silvers and 11 bronze medals. 

The 14 golds came from just six Hatfield swimmers, with Daniel Belsey leading the way with five successes.

Alexandra Nurney managed three, there were doubles for Perrin Ma and Ashley Ransome while Oliver Baskerville and Caitlin Hartley completed those heading to the top step of the podium.

Nurney also picked up three silvers and a bronze while Ma added a bronze to their tally.

Hartley and Baskerville also secured silvers, the former getting two of them,

Antonia Elias and Neive Ives won three silvers, Erin Currie getting two second places, while there were six bronze medals for Ever Ives and one for Lucas Hartley.

Hatfield also had plenty of success in the relays.

The 17+ boys' team of Josh Ellis, Ben Davison, Oliver Blight and Jason Ho placed second in the 4x100m free relay and there was also a silver for the 14-16-year-old boys' 4x200m squad of Sam Jeffrey, Daniel Belsey, Daniel Williams and Lucas Hartley.

Bronze medals were won by the girls' 17+ 4x100 medley team, swum by Jessica Keogh, Caitlin Hartley, Louise Fiddes and Charlotte Williams, and the 14-16-year-old boys' 4x100m free team, consisting of Lucas Hartley, Oliver Baskerville, Daniel Williams and Daniel Belsey.
