Saffron Seals have been crowned 2016 Essex Swimming League Division Three champions after a fourth successive win, this time at Becontree Sports Centre, Dagenham.
Before the event, Seals knew they had to achieve third place or better to claim their first-ever trophy.
They duly delivered, winning 22 of the 49 events and finishing second in 13 disciplines.
Nine swimmers – Sven Buckland, Lewis Marsh, Ciara McAuley, Alice Rogers (2), George Rogers, Will Saward, Isla Stringer and Isla Yarrow – achieved PB times but each and every swimmer and relay team competed strongly.
Final standings: Saffron Seals 199 pts; Harwich 168 pts; Hornchurch and Leyton 140 pts; Eltham Stingrays 84 pts.
