Whitby seals swimmers travelled to Middlesbrough for the annual AA graded gala in February 2011 and swam against the north eastern clubs.

They swam incredibly well considering they had been without training over the December and January period due to the snow and pool maintenance.

But, as always, the swimmers seem to be able to pull the rabbit out of the hat and walked away with a large array of medals and placings in the top eight.

Rohan Ebbs, Morgann Russell and Tilly Swales gained the top spots in their age groups, showing the larger clubs how it is done.
