The final weekend of the Lincolnshire County Swimming Championships saw 33 Boston Amateur Swimming Club swimmers take to the pool at the Meridian Sports Centre in Louth.

All those attending were hoping to build on the successes of the first weekend of competition and they didn’t disappoint.

Nine-year-old Joseph Vickers continued with his winning ways adding a further four golds and a silver to the 10 golds he won in the first weekend of competition.

Ten-year-old Cavan Chambers also added five more medals to his collection.

There were particularly dominant performances in the 200m butterfly events which saw Lewis McGarry and Michael Keal win gold in their age groups for the boys, while Harley Maddison won gold and break a Boston club record that had stood for 26 years in the 11-years girls’ age group.
