The third and final round of this competition took place on Saturday and it proved to be an exciting and closely fought contest, which CoStA eventually won by two points ahead of Hoddesdon.

It went down to the wire and CoStA completed a clean sweep of victories in all three rounds, securing them the division one title.

CoStA’s B team will join their team-mates in Division One after securing promotion in Hemel Hempstead.

Having won the previous two rounds, the pressure was on the B team to perform.

At the halfway stage this had narrowed to a single point lead, CoStA with 56 points to Hemel’s 57. The team was spurred on to put in some storming swims to lengthen their lead, finishing the night with a run of fiercely fought relays.

A deserved first place in the squadron relay was followed by overall victory for CoStA B team and promotion to Division One.
