Head coach Stephen Murphy said: “Our swimmers put in hours of training in the pool each week and this win and the individual performances we had over the weekend makes it all worth it.

“The dedication and commitment of these young swimmers, aged from nine years up to late teens is amazing to see.

The success of the club at all levels of the championships is evidenced by three out of the six girls’ age group awards going to MSM swimmers: Constance Logan, ten, Bethany Abrams, 13, and Amelia Stone, 14. Other notable performances included Sophie Shaw, 16, taking the girls’ 16 and over championship title for the 100m.

MSM also had a number of swimmers achieve National Winter qualifying times at this meet including Oliver Richardson, 14, Charlotte Johnson, 15, and Sophie Maguire, 17.

The club hopes to continue its fantastic form, having been newly promoted to the Premier Division of the National Arena Swimming League and in the New Year will compete to retain its titles in the County Relays and Sussex League.
