Frankie Webb struck gold at the East Region Age Group Championships in Southend.

And Cambridge Dive Team clubmate Max Burnell was bathed in bronze in his first event at regional level outside the city.

The two-day competition featured more than 70 divers, with Cambridge Dive Team taking a group of six to take part at the event, which is also used as a qualifier for the National Age Group Championships in June.

Webb was taking part in the Girls’ Group B category, winning gold on the 1m board and silver on the platform and 3m springboard.

In the same discipline, Catherine Lopez set a personal best on the 1m, and achieved the qualifying score on the 1m and 3m.

She took two sixth-place finishes and one seventh place across the three disciplines.

Isabella Given completed the list of Cambridge divers in the section, and was fourth on the platform and eighth on the 1m springboard.
