In an action packed couple of weekends, Acton swimmers collected medals and awards from all around the region.
Three members of Acton's masters were selected to compete for Middlesex in the National Masters' Intercounties Championships.
Tony Pepper, Malcolm Munro and David Mathison in the 35-44, 55-64 and 65 plus age groups all swam extremely well at Bexley Heath in the face of very strong opposition from the 30 competing teams.
In a nail-biting finish in the 200 years freestyle relay, Munro achieved his best time in 15 years to clinch victory for the Middlesex team, which finished third in the South East region just behind Sussex and Hampshire.
When all the regional results were collated, Middlesex came fourth in the country - the county's best ever result.
At the Hatfield open winter wonderland gala, Adam Plavsic swam faster than the meet record for the 11/12 100m breaststroke and was unlucky to miss the gold medal by a fingertip.
Fourth place in the 50m freestyle and fifth in the 50m backstroke were good achievements in a strong and older field.
Adam then took the road to Enfield, where, in the London Interborough final, he finished second in the 100m breaststroke, and, with team mate Maisie Preston, helped the borough of Ealing to win second place in the competition.
Meanwhile nearer to home, the Acton squad made its mark at Ealing Swimming Club's open graded gala.
The aim in this type of gala is to swim faster than the qualifying time and win a speeding ticket, which gives entry to competitions at a higher level.
Louise Innes showed exactly how to do this by winning four of the prized tickets in the 50m and 100m freestyle and breaststroke events.
Ryan Beresford and Tatsuki Kawagishi dominated the 12/13 age group sprints with Ryan winning gold in the backstroke and breaststroke and silver in the freestyle and Tatsuki taking gold in the freestyle and butterfly and silver in the backstroke.
Also in the B grade competition, Isabel Barnes won gold in the 50m breaststroke and Matthew Plavsic took bronze in the 50m backstroke.
Helena Phillips and Sascha Compton achieved good B grade times in their races and with fine swims, Kasia Krynska was upgraded to a B+grade in the 100m freestyle and took silver in the 50m backstroke.
In the 12/13 200m medley, Aukse Vijeikyte was also upgraded to the B+ grade and in the C grade won gold in the 100m backstroke and silver in the 100m freestyle.
Sioned Bryant was first in the 100m butterfly in the C grade competition and other worthy medallists were Noah Harrowes, who won gold in the 50m breaststroke and Merlin Harrowes, who took silver in the 50m freestyle and bronze in the 200m event.
