A host of Midlands qualifying times, personal bests, a club record and a league fixture win meant that Boston Amateur Swimming Club had one of its most successful weekends for the season.

Just a few weeks after the club secured second place in the Lincolnshire County Championships, a small group of swimmers travelled to Stoke for the Y2K Open Meet.

Harley Maddison had a weekend to remember, claiming two Midlands qualifying times and smashing one of Boston’s longest-standing club records.

The 10-year-old beat the girls’ 100m butterfly record - which has stood since 1986 - by more than three seconds.

Other Midlands times were swam by Connor Spinks (six), Lewis McGarry (three) and Lewis Bontoft (two).

Personal Bests: Lewis Bontoft (three), Michael Keal (two), Harley Maddison (three), Lewis McGarry (four), William Pettitt (six), Isaac Reed (eight) and Connor Spinks (eight).

Event wins: Lewis Bontoft (four), Harley Maddison (four), Lewis McGarry (three), William Pettitt (three), Isaac Reed (five).

The club fielded two teams in the second round of the Anglian League competition at the The Geoff Moulder Leisure Pool.

Boston A won the event, with Boston B fourth.

Race wins: Charlize Arundell (three), Chloe Baldry, James Barnes (two) Kieva Clegg (three), Libby Dean-Allen, James Hurley (two), Lauren Hurley (three), Lewis Moses (three), Joe Reed.
