Heanor Swimmers travelled across the border to Wales to take part in the Wales National Surf Stillwater Championships at Swansea International Pool.
The two day competition over the weekend of 18th and 19th February invites competitors to compete at a National level in speed lifesaving events. Jack Lilley and Joe Scurrah together with Emma and Jayne Stallion did Heanor Swimming and Lifesaving Club proud with a total medal haul of four gold, five silver and three bronze medals.
Jack Lilley achieved two gold medals and the Welsh Champion Title in the under 16s 100m manikin carry and manikin tow events, swimming personal best times in three of four events.
Not to be out done Jayne matched this achievement in the female category of the same age group in identical events taking the two U/16s female titles and achieving two World Championship qualifying times again needing to swim four personal best times out of her five events.
The two sisters paired in the rope throw with Emma throwing and Jayne catching to take silver medal with a good first throw just narrowly missing first place.
