Arrows hit golden target

THREE Hucknall girls helped catapult the Nottingham-based Green Arrows synchronised swimming team to a gold medal in a competition they organised last weekend.

Team captain Olivia Shelton and fellow Hucknallites Hannah Jowitt and Kayleigh Dodd joined forces with Laura Hugill, of Giltbrook, Jessica Marsh, of Ravenshead, and Carole-Ann Galloway, of Stapleford, to take team gold in the open category.

The event, which was staged by the Arrows at the Sutton Pools complex in Sutton-in-Ashfield, featured teams from Oxford, Norwich, Lincoln and Leicestershire.

Other results included a fourth place for Shelton in the open solo event, a third place for Hucknall girl Alice South and partner Bethany Jenkins in the 14-and-under duet, third place for Jess Marsh, of Ravenshead, and Galloway in the open duet and fifth place for the Arrows in the combination team discipline.
