KILLERWHALES cheered six of the best at the final round of the Essex Age Group Championships at Blackshots last weekend.

Daniel Weston, 9, added two more gold medals to his CV, in the 200m medley and 200m backstroke to claim the top boy award in his section.

And 18-year-old Kalei Andrews won her first county titles in the 200m butterfly and 400m medley, adding silver in the 200m medley.

There was another gold for Lewis Clifford-Stephenson after a fine swim in the 100m medley and he also picked up silvers in the 100m freestyle and 200m medley.

Nine-year-old Zoe Kearns produced a fantastic swim to win her 200m butterfly in a new event record time, but Danielle Rooke, 13, just missed out on gold by 0.03secs in her 100m freestyle.

There were silver medals for Katinka Merchan in the 17 & over 400m medley and 12-year-old Connor Kearns in his 200m breaststroke, while brothers Harry and Charlie Fox were second in their 200m and 100m backstroke swims, with Harry claiming a national qualifying time into the bargain.

Tom Webb, 16, picked up his first ever county medals with bronze in the 100m medley and 100m freestyle and George Crow, 14, was third in 100m backstroke.

Julia Braybrooke added bronze in the 17 & over 200m butterfly and there were impressive swims by Molly Sparks, who was fourth in her 100m butterfly and 400m medley and David Bennett, who was fifth in the 200m backstroke.

Kieran Goodwin was fifth in the 200m backstroke and sixth in the 100m event as Killerwhales took fifth overall in the final table, their highest position for several years.
