The March Marlins are celebrating after storming to success in the opening round of the Senior Fenland League last weekend.

The local swimmers triumphed in Newmarket thanks to top performances from over a dozen members, including national title holder Danielle Rayner, who recorded two new personal bests in the 100m freestyle and 100m relay.

Also in fine form was Georgia Ambrose, who swam to a new personal best in the 100m and 100m backstroke, and Graham Shaw, who beat his own record in the 100m fly.

Regional talent Thomas Hanley was also among those to record a new best time, impressing in the 100m freestyle, while Hayden Courten chalked up two new personal bests.

Jacob Cowin competed well in three races on the day, recording a new best time in the 100m backstroke.
