Harpenden Swimming Club's juniors were in action at Potters Bar on Saturday night in the second round of this year's Herts Peanuts League.

In a fantastic night of racing they again finished in second place.

The team took 11 first places and 12 seconds on the night to finish a mere 12 points behind Hemel Hempstead who finished third overall last season.

Subject to confirmation this puts the team in third place overall going into the third round and certainly confirms their place in the top six.

It is also amazing that once again the juniors are matching the club's seniors in securing a top six finish.

Eleven-year-old Michael Revell was outstanding on the night taking first place in the U12s 50m breaststroke and 50m butterfly and also taking second in the U13s 50m breaststroke.

Eleven-year-old Harry Hughes took first in the 50m freestyle in a time of 32:82 posting a one-second PB, whilst 12-year-old Josh Duggan took over 3.5 seconds off his 50m breaststoke touching in 35:63.

Other individual first places were recorded by Tania De Malglaive, Megan Campfield and Mai An Dang.

In the relays, the club's nine-year-old boys recorded a first and second place in their two races, the 11-year-old girls took first in their freestyle and medley races, and the 12-year-old boys took first in the 4x50m freestyle.
