BUNTINGFORD Swimming Club's fledgling triathlon team was this week celebrating after a trophy-winning display.
Millie Farmer, 11, who also swims for Royston, finished first in her category at a children's triathlon in Rayleigh, Essex on Saturday.
In addition Tom Carr, 12, and his sister Gemma, nine, earned top-15 spots in their age-group events.
The event attracted hundreds of youngsters from all over East Anglia.
It was the second week running that Tom Carr had impressed - seven days earlier he had gained a top-10 spot in a children's triathlon in Dover, Kent.
Club coaches are delighted after seeing a number of Buntingford youngsters shine at multi-discipline events this summer.

Christina Branch, Jessica Earp and Hannah Bashir came first in an under-19 team race at the British Modern Biathlon Championships in Manchester. Georgia Makin, 11, also raced at the meeting.
The club will stage its own triathlon next month.
n Swimmers at Royston and Buntingford were this week stepping-up training as they attempted to recover from disappointing starts to their summer league campaigns.
Royston coach Jenny Brackley has introduced gym training sessions for race squad members.
And Buntingford head coach Alan Bowell has introduced a second swim training night.
Both clubs were forced to field weakened teams in the first round of their Hertfordshire under-13 Peanuts League campaigns.
But coaches hope improved displays in the last two rounds can earn their squads top-six places.
