The results of the WD Long Course Championships Round 2 are now available in the members section.
11 Swimmers from the club attended the meet over the course of the weekend, taking part in 30 swims, with the swimmers achieving a very healthy return rate of 24 new Long Course PB’s. In addition there were 11 top ten finishes for the club over the weekend, with 3 swimmers achieving SNAGS qualification or consideration times.
The boys 13 year old 50m Freestyle was a particular highlight for the club at the weekend as we found ourselves with 3 swimmers in the final – Adam Thomson, Sam McCallum and Evan Boyd, with all three posting new PB’s on their way to the final. Adam swam a superb race to win himself the silver medal, with both Evan and Sam improving their times further in the final to finish 7th and 8th respectively.
Other medals were secured by Adam, who won gold in the 1500m Freestyle on his debut in the event and also took home the silver medal for 200m Breaststroke with a new Long Course PB, and Evan, who swam brilliantly with new PB’s in the backstroke events to secure the silver medal in both the 50m and 200m.
Murray Mcghee earned himself a near 2.5s PB in the 50m Breaststroke and Emma Kavanagh followed up her brilliant 200m Breaststroke swim last weekend at Scottish Schools to finish 8th this weekend in the same event, Emma also earned herself a new PB in the 50m Butterfly.
Emma Johnson continued her recovery from her illness over Christmas to almost match her 50m Freestyle PB and set a new PB in 50m Long Course Breaststroke. Sophie McLaughlin gained new LC PB’s in 200m Breaststroke, 50m Butterfly and 50m Freestyle.
Rowan MacDonald took over 5.5s off her 50m Butterfly time and also swam a new PB in her 50m Backstroke. Ross Nicol also continues to improve and set new PB’s for both 50m Backstroke and 50m Freestyle.
Club Captain David Rowan is also getting closer to his best form and was very close to achieving a new PB for his 50m Breaststroke, while Kathryn White posted a new LC PB in the 50m backstroke.
Very well done swimmers, keep up the good work.
