Chester Swimming Club further enhanced their reputation with a series of superb individual displays at the ASA National Age and Youth Championships.
Lucy Worrall, though only 14, qualified for the senior competition and may force her way into the British team for the European Junior Championships.
She started off the week in fine style by qualifying for the senior final of the 400m individual medley but made the tough decision to pull out to focus on her main event, the 800m front crawl, the next day.
The sacrifice was worth it as Lucy again qualified for the senior final stripping one second off her personal best.
The final of the event was the next day and forced Lucy to miss the Youth 200m front crawl and 100m fly finals to concentrate on her 800m.
In the 800m final she exceeded all expectations by finishing fourth in a time of 8mins 58.24secs.
Chester gave a good account of themselves at the championships.
Tom Allen led the way in the medals with two bronze in the 11 to 13-year-old age category, one in the 1500m front crawl the other in the 400m individual medley.
He just missed out on a hat-trick of medals after finishing fourth in the 200m butterfly.
Sarah Eaglesham also did well, coming sixth in the 400m crawl and seventh in the 100m while Alice Howarth stripped a second off her personal best as she came 13th in the 100m backstroke.
Jason Boylan, Sian Roberts, Marc Raven and brother and sister team Hannah and Ryan Oldfield also competed with Ryan and Marc both achieving personal bests in the 800m and 1500m front crawl.
