|A busy weekend for Hemel’s Masters and Senior swimmers got underway in Aberdeen at the British Masters & Senior Age Group Champs. The Hemel team of Jack Christie, Jack Spence, Kira Doyle, Hannah Bennett, Kyle Holmes and Josh Gaines hoovered up medals with Hannah and Jack (S) winning golds in their individual 50 back and 200 back respectively alongside relay golds for the mixed 4 x 100 free and mixed 4 x 200 free quartets. Hannah also set 4 Club age group records – one in an event, the 1500 free, that we haven’t recognised for ladies before and which was also an East Region record!|
