A young Boston Amateur Swimming Club team won round two of the 2014 Fenland League competition at Newmarket.

A dominant performance saw them win the event by 70 points.

By the end of the first 10 races, Boston had won five of them and were 10 points ahead of nearest rivals, First Strokes.

And it was the same story for the next 10 races, with the team continuing to pull away.

By race 26, Boston were now 32 points ahead but the team continued to battle on to the end, going on two impressive runs, with seven and then six consecutive first-place finishes.

Full of confidence, the eight swimmers lined up for the freestyle relay, finishing more than six seconds ahead of the four other teams.

Final standings: 1 Boston 193, 2 Bottisham 123, 3 St Neots 115, 3 First Strokes 115, 5 Huntingdon.

Firsts: Emily Bontoft (two), Aliesha Bower, Rico Bringeman (two), Pasquale Fiore, Megan Glynn, Tegan Harrison, James Hutchings, Anton Kiss (three), Callum Kiss, Harley Maddison, Katarzyna Midgley, Jessica Sauntson, Katie Scott; Lottie Street (2); Oliver Sydenham (2); Joseph Vickers (4).
