Just one point separated the two teams at the end of a hard fought, nailbiting contest that saw the cadets fight hard for every podium place in a contest that saw four records broken, one by the Wing’s Corporal Pippa Ball from 1084 (Market Harborough) Squadron.

The Wing took both the Senior Girls and Senior Boys Trophies, came second to Trent Wing in the Junior Girls Class and joint second with Trent in the Junior Boys, victory going to Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire Wing.

The broad grin on the face of Officer Commanding the Wing, Wing Commander Nigel Dickinson said it all. He told the team “ I am proud of you all and thank you for all the effort you have put in to this victory, at last we have got the swimming trophy”

Cadets who won their races will now go on to represent Central and East Region in the Inter Region Championships.
