Her other top-ten finishes came in the 50m butterfly and 200m freestyle.

Sam Lawman, competing in the 17 years and over events, claimed silver in the 50m backstroke, ninth place in the 100m and seventh in the 50m butterfly.

Other top-ten finishers were Beth Meer, Abigail Shuttleworth and Azura Cairns Poole.
