Ashley Buck was one of the stand-out performers for Suffolk during the east region inter-county gala held at Newmarket Leisure Centre.

The Newmarket Swimming Club member made full use of competing in his home pool after powering to victory in the over-25s’ 50-metre backstroke, along with taking third in the 50m butterfly.

Buck’s winning backstroke time of 29.38 seconds ranked him fourth nationally.

Later in the event, Buck teamed up with Tom Williams, Sonny Trigg and Sean Burgess to outclass the opposition in the combined age over-100 men’s 200m medley relay.

Rachel Stacey also competed in the event picking up valuable points for Suffolk.
