THE ASA Northern Area Zonal Meet is a prestigious event where top swimmers from the whole of Northern England compete.

Grace Dennis and Yasmin Brown from Bridlington Swimming Club took part.

Unfortunately Dennis was unwell and had to withdraw, but Brown was swimming in her first zonal meet.

She reached two finals and gained a personal best time in all four events in which she competed.

In the 50m and 100m freestyle races she qualified for the finals. Her time in the 50m qualified her for the British Gas International Swim meet that takes part in March.

This is a fantastic achievement for someone who has only just turned 15.

In the 100m freestyle she gained an age group National time.

These swimmers work really hard and put in hours training here and in Hull. Hard work really does pay off.

ENNERDALE was the venue for the thoroughly enjoyable Hull and District Gala One. It was well organised and ran smoothly.

Five swimmers from Bridlington took part. For Jaden Hart and Emily Asquith it was their first time competing in a Hull and District Gala.

All the swimmers had good solid swims and gained personal best times. There was lots of encouragement from all swimmers and poolside spectators.

Medals were awarded to the first five in the events.

Results: Katie Nicholson 5th,4th (took 10 seconds off her PB) Emily Asquith 4th, 3rd, Sarah Witty 3rd, 5th, Rebecca Witty 4th.

Thank you to Mandy Witty, team manager, Helen Morland, judge and Mark Asquith, timekeeper.

The next Hull and District Gala is on March 14.
