Samuel Lowe had some excellent swims and personal best times winning bronzes in the 100 & 200 Butterfly and the 200 Freestyle finishing in the top 6 in 8 of his events making 5 finals. A great second Hampshire weekend for him. Luke Le Cras swam 4 personal best times also making the final in the 50 breaststroke finishing 6th overall.
