Pirates Swim Club captured back-to-back titles with an impressive performance yesterday when the 29th edition of the Annual Aquatic Centre International Invitational meet concluded at the Wildey Pool.

The Pirates, led by CARIFTA gold medallist Danielle Treasure, Jaiya Simmons and Kaija Eastmond scored 1 126 points to repeat as champions on a rainy Sunday morning.

High Tide Stringrays, propelled by one of the island’s most decorated junior female swimmers, Adara Stoddard, finished runners-up with 1 089 points, while Alpha Swim Club took the third position with 719 points.

Treasure, who will represent Barbados at the inaugural junior Pan American Games in November, picked up where she left off on Friday night to win gold in the Girls open 200-metre backstroke.
