Silver medals were achieved by Madison (25m backstroke), Briony (50m breaststroke), Megan (25m butterfly), Lilias (50m butterfly),Henry (50m backstroke, 50m breaststroke) and Leon (25m butterfly).

Gold medal success stories on the night were written by the following Otters – Rebecca Hindle with a terrific sprint to gold in the 25m butterfly, Fifi Martindale who beat off eight rivals to win the 50m breaststroke and Joel Clarke who won three golds from three races in his first competition for the club. Well done all.
