North West Thunder win Girls’ U14 Inter Regional title
North West Thunder won the Swim England Inter Regional girls’ U14 crown for the first time at last weekend’s Championships in Walsall.
Having stormed through the group stage with three wins from three, they defeated 2015 champions London in the semi-finals before a 7-4 victory over North East in the final.
Thunder’s northern rivals proved a tough nut to crack in the final, holding them to 3-3 at half-time and 4-4 at the final interval.
But a final quarter hat-trick from Harriet Dickens went unanswered in the fourth quarter as North West became the fourth different winner of the girls’ U14 title in as many years.
