Leicestershire secured their best result for more than 10 years with a 12th place finish at last year’s County Team Championships.
Loughborough Town’s Will Bell was one of the stars on the day, claiming maximum points in the 12/13 Yrs 100m Freestyle and finishing third in the 100m Butterfly.
Bell’s victory in the 100m Free was Leicestershire’s first event win since 2013 when they were promoted from Division Two.
Bell returns in this year’s 14/15 Yrs age group, having won three golds and three silvers at the 2016 British Summer Championships.
Meanwhile, Braunstone’s Maisie Elliott won a bronze in the 13/14 Yrs 50m Butterfly at the same event, and Leicester Sharks’ Michaella Glenister made finals in the 400m Free, 200m IM and 400m IM.
