HUNTINGDON Piranhas' young swimmers recorded a convincing victory in the B Final of the Junior Fenland League, following on from their C Final victory last year.

Competing against teams from March, Ely, Bottisham and Wisbech, Piranhas grew in strength as the event progressed and won 19 of the 43 races.

Victorious Piranhas on the day were Zoe Griffiths (2), Reece Johnstone (2), Taylor Goodby (2), George Girvan (2) and Catherine Lee (2), who each picked up two wins. Further wins were added by Adrian Vuylsteke, Chloe Phillips, Chloe Gibson, Kora Gibson, Teagan Shepherd, Daniel Parekh-Hill, Duncan Wotherspoon, Ryan Martin and the relay squad.

The Piranhas have been in good form in the past month, missing out by just a point to Ely in the Autumn Shield, and by the same margin to March Marlins in the Norwich and Peterborough Trophy Gala.
