North Herts diver Maddie Maranian has achieved outstanding triple success by gaining three new titles.
She is now the Herts county junior champion, Eastern Region champion and schools' Division 10 age group champion.
The Herts ASA County Diving Championships were held at the new indoor Stevenage diving complex last month and top local coach Derek Beaumont believes this was one of the finest ever county competitions in Herts diving history.
The top three girls were in immaculate form with 14-year-old Maddie taking the gold in the one metre junior event.

And in the synchronised one metre event, Lydia and Lauren Jones took the gold medal with Maddie and Jessica Dangerfield the silver and Madeleine Lodge and Nicola Davies bronze.
All the girls attend the Beaumont Diving Academy and are coached by Derek Beaumont from Letchworth Garden City whose divers have now won the junior county title a record 23 times since 1984.
The Herts Schools' Division 10 Age Group championships were held at Hemel Hempstead a few days previously.
Two Stevenage girls, Maddie and Lauren, both former gymnasts from the Marriotts Gym Club, took gold medals in their respective age groups.
This now puts them through to represent their region against the other regional finalists in November in Hereford.
And at the more recent Eastern Regional Championships, three Beaumont girls - Maddie, Lois Hoyte and Emma Chambers - took gold medals in their age groups.
There was also success for George Petrie in the boys' event.
