Sharon Evans made her debut swim of the year in fine style with a 5.26.23 time to set a county record in the 400m freestyle, 45-49 yr age group.
Lindsey Gowland completed the 10 eligible swims required for decathlon recognition and catapulted to 4th place in the individual National Women’s Top Ten league.
