The Bajan club went on to take the 13-14 girls, Alexis Clarke and the 11-12 boys, Luis-Sebastian Weekes in the same event. Alex Sober of Alpha Sharks, also of Barbados managed to defeat local open water champion Christian Marsden in the 13-14 boys category.
In the younger age groups Jahmia Harley; Tidal Wave Aquatics, fresh from her success at the National Short Course Championships held last month, took the 9-10, 50m Backstroke. Her teammate, Aqueel Joseph was not as successful as Lleyton Martin of Wadadi Aquatic Racers; Antigua took the top spot in the boy’s version of this event.
An exciting race for the night was the boys 11-12 Backstroke where top locals; Jeron Thompson; Atlantis and Kael Yorke; Tidal Wave put up a fight with Grenadian Delron Felix of Grenfin Swim Club. Felix touched the wall first in a time 30.78; Yorke second with 30.82 and Thompson with 30.96; less than half a second separating these swimmers.
