Seven club records fell as Deepings Swimming Club dominated the Boston Open Meet at Grantham with a bounty of 103 medals.

Success came in all age groups and all strokes as the team topped the podium 37 times, took 29 silvers and added 37 bronze medals.

Alex Sadler, Tiffany Wong and Bethany Eagle-Brown set new club records with some scintillating performances.

Sadler’s three records came in the 50m butterfly, 100m and 200m backstroke, winning gold in each of the races. The 11-year-old added further golds in the 50m and 200m freestyle and 200m butterfly, taking his tally to six, as well as winning silver in the 400m freestyle.

Twelve-year-old Wong bagged a brace of club records as part of her seven medals. In the 50m backstroke, she rewrote the Deepings history book by breaking a record that had stood for 17 years, winning silver in the process.

Wong went on to lower the club record in the 100m individual medley with gold, and then added further golds in the 50m and 100m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 50m breaststroke, plus bronze in the 100m butterfly. In the 50m freestyle, she dipped below the magic 30-second mark for the first time, winning in a time of 29.27.

Fifteen-year-old Eagle-Brown already holds the club records for the 100 individual medley and 100m freestyle in the 14-year-old age category and she has now taken the 15 age group too after a couple of gold-medal performances, including her first sub 59-second 100m freestyle. She also won the 100m butterfly, added silver in th 50m butterfly and bronze in the 200 individual medley and 50m freestyle.

Emma Dennis dominated the longer distances in the 10-year-old age group, winning the 200 individual medley, 200m backstroke, 100m and 200m breaststroke, and the 400m freestyle. She also chalked up silver in the 50m freestyle and bronze in the 200m backstroke.

Holly Leggott doubled up in the backstroke, with gold in the 100m and 200m, while Lara Treharne collected a pair of golds in the 50m and 100m butterfly, and Lucia Karic won the 200 individual medley and 200m freestyle. Leggott also broke the one minute barrier in the 100m freestyle for the first time, coming home in 59.76 to take silver.

Capping a golden meet for the girls’ squad were Millie Bussey (50m butterfly), Grace Edwards (100m backstroke) and Lorna McGill (200m breaststroke).

Jake Jungmann was in impressive form for the boys, winning gold in the 50m and 100m backstroke and the 100 individual medley.
