A TWO star show from four 11-year-old girls was not quite enough to keep Stevenage Swimming Club in swimming's first division on Saturday.
Kirsty Hamshere, Danielle Murphy, Megan Nation and Lily West (pictured below) cruised to victory in both the freestyle and medley relays but coach Greg Lasenby's youngsters failed to avoid relegation to the second division.
They needed to finish fourth out of eight teams to stay up - but they ended the night in sixth.
"I'm really proud of them all," Lasenby said.
