After a top-class performance from the Novice swimmers in the morning session the senior swimmers too went on to produce some outstanding results in the afternoon session. 35 new personal best times were set out a total of 48 races. Three swimmers were unfortunately disqualified due to either technical or stroke infringements but they all responded positively to their disappointment which showed a real strength of character.

An initially nervous Ellen McQuilton went on to produce two solid races hitting lifetime best times and knowing there is even more to come. Catriona Cleary competed in the two events she needed for qualification to the East District age-groups later this year setting two new pb’s but missing both times by fractions of a second. Ollie Carter continued his recent run of excellent form producing more personal best times. Abby Hay smashed the time she set just last week, swimming a sub 1.10 for the first time in 100m Free.

Robyn Henderson and Lindsay Moncrieff raced together in the 100m Freestyle both producing fantastic times with Lindsay now one of the fastest freestylers in her age-group at the club. Jimmy Brooks too put in a solid swim setting a new pb time with 2 ½ seconds off. Kirstin Bousie overcame her disappointment in not finishing the 100m Breaststroke, owing to choking on pool water, by producing a strong 50m Fly and an excellent pb. The dark horse in that heat though was Lindsay Moncrieff, away across in lane one, who delivered a breath-taking 42.62 to reinforce being on top form.

Corrie Hay, following on from last week’s success in the 200m Breaststroke, went on to set a new pb in the 100m too. Rhiannon Laing, who set a good time last week, went even faster still yesterday showing that Breaststroke is still one of her favourite strokes. Jack Gordon, never short of a smile, put in two great swims in his events taking over ten seconds off his 100m Breaststroke in particular. Callum MacPherson, not a lover of the art of breaststroke, also smashed his entry time much to his delight.  Our older girls Nicola, Megan and Katie all swam lifetime best times in each of their swims with Nicola’s 50m Fly particularly impressive. Hannah Thorne overcame her earlier disappointment in the 100m Backstroke by hurtling down the pool on her 50m Fly taking an outstanding 8 ¾ seconds off her time. Euan Baillie continued his good form on Butterfly with younger brother Lewis also setting a new pb in the 100m Fly. Vice-captain Ben Levy also put in a barnstorming swim in his 50m Fly taking over six seconds off. Adam Young showed a return to form by also hitting pb in the same event. Murdo Denholm, disqualified earlier in the day in the 100m Fly produced a stronger swim for pb and proved that he is still one of the clubs best young Fly swimmers.

My thanks to parents who officiated and to Karen Baillie for team management and Catriona McCrone and Mark McQuilton for their support poolside. We’re back at Glenrothes on the 21st September to finish the Fife Leagues season off. Come along and support the swimmers.
