Gold medals eluded the team but fourteen year old Rebecca Dunn from Guiseley led the charge for the silver medals. Her medals came in the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke.
She then went on to clinch bronze in the 200m individual medley and fifth place in the 50m butterfly to round of a great weekend’s swimming.
Fifteen year old Sam Akers from Silsden was in medal winning form as he took third place in the 1500m freestyle and then narrowly missed out on a medal in the shorter 400m freestyle finishing in fourth place in a time of 4.32.49.
Swimming as a fifteen year old Fraser Buxton finished in fifth and sixth places in the 50m and 100m breaststroke respectively and also came just outside the top ten in the 50m butterfly finishing in eleventh place.
Next in line was Ella Jones swimming in the seventeen years and over events. Jones secured two top ten finishes in the 50m and 200m backstroke events.
Ilkley’s Holly Vasey missed out on the medals but swam a well paced race to claim tenth place in the fourteen years 100m butterfly. She also had top twenty finishes in the 50m butterfly, 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle.
Now swimming in the seventeen years and over age group John-Luke Hutchinson finished in tenth place in the 50m backstroke and went on to have top twenty placings in the 100m freestyle and 200m individual medley.
Bringing up the rear was thirteen year old Eva Gray from Askwith who rounded off a good weekend for City with a tenth place finish in the 50m backstroke and sixteenth place in the 50m freestyle.
