A strong performance from the Piranhas, pictured, saw them hold off the challenge of St Neots and Rushden at a recent gala.
The B Grade meeting was held at the St Neots pool with swimmers from the age of 12 swimming 200-metre events.
The Piranhas took an early lead and maintained a high standard throughout the evening, winning 18 of the 36 events and finishing second in a further 10 races.
Fourteen-year-old Tamara Richards was one of the top performers on the night, winning all three of her races in the open category, including the 400-metre freestyle.
Charlotte Harrison, 12, won the 200m freestyle and backstroke in her age group as well as clinching the 200m butterfly at 14-and-under.
Matthew Lardner, 14, Lianne Griffiths, 14, Chelsea Prouten, 14, and Laura Vuylsteke, 12, all won two races apiece while eight-year-old Zoe Griffiths, William Davies, 10, and Samantha Green, 13, completed the 17 individual wins.

In addition, the eight-strong girls relay squad recorded a convincing win.
The boys' relay squad of Dan Courton, Kristen Chadband, Matthew Lardner, Ryan Skeels, Matthew Davitt, Remmick Sargianopolous, William Davies and Adrian Vuylsteke almost made it a double relay celebration, but were just pipped into second place.
Piranhas head coach John Richards said: "We had boys and girls from the age of 14 swimming 200m butterfly events - that is some achievement.
"Most of the races were 200 metres and all swimmers put in the maximum effort.
