There was yet another successful gala for Hatfield Swimming Club as they competed at the East Region Winter Nationals.

Held at Inspire Luton, the region's top swimmers competed against each other in an open age group format where Hatfield ended up third overall.

A spokeswoman for the club said: "We had some excellent swims with many swimmers setting new personal best times.

"There were also swimmers achieving the qualifying standards for the Winter Nationals which will be held in Sheffield in December."

Hatfield swimmers also claimed numerous medals along the way.

James Woodward took gold in the 100m and 200m butterfly with a bronze coming in the 50m while Ashley Ransome was on the top step of the podium in the 50m breaststroke, with a bronze coming in the 100m.

Megan Gray was third behind Ransome over the 50m distance.

Ransome and Woodward both made the podium again as part of Hatfield's relay squads.

Woodward took gold alongside Ben Davison, Lucas Hartley and Jason Ho in the men's 200m freestyle relay while Ransome claimed another bronze in the women’s 200m medley relay, together with Erin Currie, Charlotte Williams and Alexandra Nurney.

The pair, as well as Currie and Davison, then won bronze in the mixed 200m medley.
