Locks Heath claimed a golden hat-trick at the Windsor Open Meet.

Alongside a double victory for Evelyn Hall and a Shannon Lamb’s win, the squad notched three silvers, six bronze medals and 44 personal bests.

A team of 13 made the long trip to Maidenhead’s Magnet Leisure Centre.

Among them was debutante Juliet Jarvie, who clocked five personal bests in her six races.

Matilda Hall also made her competitive bow and looks set to follow in her sister Evelyn’s footsteps.

Evelyn Hall won gold in both the backstroke and freestyle at 50m in top times.

The 10-year-old starlet did not stop there, though, and went on to take bronze in the 100m individual medley.

Her brother James Hall recorded three personal bests in a fine day for the family.

Amelia Ayling, 10, capped a fine gala with a bronze in the 200m freestyle, while Gracie Goddard lowered her best times in all five of her races.

Goddard, nine, took a hat-trick of silver medals in the breaststroke, backstroke and freestyle – all at 50m.

Lamb clocked four personal bests on her way to gold in the 100m individual medley and bronze medals in the 50m backstroke, 50m freestyle and 100 freestyle.

Kyle Kirkland clinched bronze in his 50m backstroke and managed to record four personal best times at the Berkshire venue.

Joshua Beaudro may have missed out on medals at the gala hosted by Windsor Swimming Club.

But he was in fine form, improving four of his top times – which included knocking a whopping nine seconds off his 100m individual medley mark.

Hannah Roberts, 13, Thomas Larby, 10, Harrison Kennedy, 11, and Scott Hutin, 10, were also in fine fettle clocking personal bests.
