Lauren Hew of the Cayman Islands was on the podium twice for at last weekend’s Florida 1 A Championships in Stuart, Florida.

She won her first medal in the 200-yard freestyle relay.

During the morning session Hew swam anchor as her team advanced to the championship final in a time 1:38.51.

She led off in the final and gave them an incredible start, uncorking a 23.72s effort. Her teammates (24.50), (24.74) and (24.24) combined to produce a time of 1:37.20 that was good enough for a silver medal.

The time also made them the fifth fastest team in Florida.

Hew later won a bronze medal in the 100-yard backstroke. She clocked 55.29, the fifth fastest time overall.

She was less fortunate in the 100-yard freestyle where she just missed a personal best performance.

Hew, who has a personal best of 50.95s, was one of three girls under 24 seconds at the half-way mark. However, she faded over the final half and ended fifth in a time of 51.23s.

Saint Andrews finished 11th overall at the championships. Their girls were fifth with 130 points.
