ASA South West Regional Championships, 30 April---2 May
Leading the way were Ella Farley (16), who took gold in the 200m fly, and club captain Dominic Wooldridge (17+) with gold in 100m fly. Fly proved to be the club's favourite stroke, with Tom Downs (17+) picking up silver and Joe Day (15) bronze over 200m fly, Ella bronze over 100m fly, and Alec White (15) silver in the 50m fly sprint.
After fly, backstroke proved popular with Exeter swimmers, as Katie Townsend (16) claimed bronze in 50m back and doubled up with bronze in 100m back, a fraction behind Aliyah-Mai Webb (16) in silver. Aliyah claimed two more medals in the medley: bronze over 200m, silver over 400m.
There were also top-10 finishes for Tom Price (15), Liam White (17+), Charlie Kendall (16), Andre Orchard (15), and Dayna Riordan (17+).
Attention now turns to the younger age-groups, who will be attempting to outdo their senior teammates at the regional championships in Hengrove and Millfield later this month.
