Seventeen swimmers represented Honiton Swimming Club at the Exmouth Gala, writes Hazel Layzell.

Many of the swimmers finished in the top six of their age category for either 50m or 100m in all strokes and the 100 individual medley.

There were many gold, silver and bronze medals awarded to the club swimmers.

For some of them this was their first competitive gala - well done!

Three Honiton swimmers had times to be able to represent the club at the Devon County Championships.
