Pair impress at swim meet

ONLY two Matlock swimmers travelled to Clay Cross on Saturday, May 21, to compete in the annual Rykneld Open Meeting, following the late withdrawal of Laura Smith through illness.

Nevertheless, the trip proved to be fruitful.

Sian Heap, aged nine, swam in five events and won awards in four of them, of which a third place in her favoured breaststroke was the highest placing.

Her sister, Cerys, aged ten, raced twice and won a sixth place medal in the 50 metres freestyle, her first ever award in this discipline.
