Special mention goes to the girls and boys under 10 relay squad which was made up of Leigh Chatten, Laura Wilson, Madison Mayers-Brandeth, Abbey Furmedge, William Davies, Daniel Willoughby, Matthew Rea and Adrian Vuylsteke.
The Piranhas were the only team on the night who were able to enter relay squads in this age group and the points were invaluable.
Piranhas, who are sponsored by The Centurian Club, Somersham, have come back after lighter summer holiday training brimming with confidence.
New head coach John Richards said he was delighted with the result: "This was an excellent team effort all round with every swimmer producing their best. We are now looking forward to the final of the Anglian League at the weekend.
