ABI Tetley, the Cuddingtonbased Winsford ASC swimmer, set a club record at the Commonwealth Games trials at Sheffield.
Tetley, 18, clocked 59.83 seconds in the 100m freestyle achieving one aim but missing out on another.
She was determined to beat the one-minute barrier and became the first Winsford swimmer to do so. But she narrowly failed to reach the semi-finals, which she believed possible.
She was a little slow off the block, but clawed back a lot of water in the second 50m and her time ranked her 23rd out of 156 entries.
Tetley prefers the 50m swim and reckons she can go faster yet, though the Sir John Deane's student is having to quit Winsford in the autumn to join a Manchester club while at university.
Meanwhile, her sister Lucie contested the Youth Championships and swam 1min 17.42secs in the 100m freestyle and was placed 20th in the 16/17s age group. She also raced to a new pb of 2-30.36 in the 200m event.
Winsford swimmers Terry and Ian Cowburn swam in the Northern Counties Open Water Champion-ships at Salford Quays.
Terry was second in the 2.5km junior race in 32-06. He swam an intelligent tactical race to catch his second-placed rival with 250m to go.
Ian was ninth in the 5km senior race in 1hr 15mins 3secs.
James Cowburn, 14, added to his 200m backstroke silver at the National Junior Championships by taking a bronze in the 100m event.
Abbie Henderson, at 13, was also the youngest competitor at the Commonwealth trials and 92nd of 113 qualifiers in 4-42.08 over the same distance.
