A swimming club put in a good performance in the final round of the Speedo League despite the team being ravaged by illness.

CoStA enjoyed plenty of success on Saturday, Robbie Lightowler and Anne-Marie Du Preez leading the way with two individual victories each.

Lightowler was victorious in the 100m Butterfly and 100m Freestyle with Du Preez proving dominant in the 100m Breaststroke, winning the event at two different age categories.

14 year-old Jack Baron also won in the Butterfly, breaking the one-minute barrier.

There were also creditable second places, notably for Charlotte Henson, as well as for a number of the relay teams. Nine personal best times helped cap a successful evening which saw CoStA narrowly miss out on promotion to the first division.
