Louth's first win came from the boys Under-14 4x50m medley relay team.
They were led off by gala newcomer Kieran Young in the backstroke, who got the team into third place. He was followed by Sam Swaby on the breaststroke leg, who swept into first position.
This was maintained by Fin Fox in the butterfly and converted into a three-second win by freestyle swimmer Daniel Challis.
Challis was the club's first individual winner of the evening, in the Under-14 boys 100m freestyle.
He was the victor later in the evening too, in the Under-14 boys' 100m backstroke.
He was awarded the Louth 'Swimmer of the Night' accolade.
The next winner for Louth was Sophie Long, who fought off a strong rival in the girls open 100m butterfly.
Sam Swaby had another victory in the Under-14 boys 100m breaststroke, managing to beat his closest rival from Lincoln Vulcans by more than 2.5 seconds. He led from the start and the win was never in doubt.
Emma Maw also had two emphatic wins. The first came in the Under-12 girls 50m butterfly, in which she secured a narrow victory of 0.5 seconds.
She had a slightly easier swim in her Under-12 girls 50m freestyle. She showed her strength through to the finish and was rewarded by gaining a new personal best and county time.
Individual second places went to Paige Kelly in the Under-10 girls 50m freestyle and Fin Fox in the Under-14 boys 100m butterfly.
