Dundee City Aquatics Stars of the Future

A squad of 17 swimmers from  Cupar & District Swimming Club made the trip across the River Tay to compete in the last ever swimming competition at the Olympia Leisure Centre in the Dundee City Aquatics Stars of the Future Meet.  Cupar had one of the largest teams taking part in the event and showed from the outset that Cupar are a club to be reckoned with.

A total of 30 personal best times were achieved, with some swimmers carving large chunks off their entry times.  This gala provided a busy schedule of races with heats and finals in all 4 strokes as well as Individual Medley races.

Best improvements on entry times came from Cameron Paterson, taking 13.66 seconds off his 100m IM time, Millie Buchan with 15.04 seconds off in the 100m Backstroke and Emily Baxter with 6.93 seconds off in the 100m IM.  10 year-old Louise Moncrieff from Dairsie continued her recent run of personal bests, with an improvement of 8.60 seconds in the 50m Breaststroke and 10.64 seconds off in the 50m Backstroke.

In the 100m IM, Adam Young secured a bronze medal with a new personal best time.  Not to be outdone, Findlay Baillie swam his way into the 50m Breaststroke final, going on to win the silver medal.  The afternoon session saw Adam make it through to the finals of the 50m Freestyle, where he collected silver in a closely contested race, followed by a bronze medal in the 50m Backstroke.  Nicole Reynolds made the final of the 50m Freestyle and went on to place fourth in a thrilling race.

This was the last competitive gala of the season of these young swimmers and it was an excellent way to finish.  Lead Coach Mark Laing said “I have been very impressed with the improvements made by our swimmers over the last few months.  We are all looking forward to a break from competition over the summer and coming back refreshed for the next season.

Fife Novice Leagues May 2013

Another excellent weekend of swimming in the Novice League with a total of nine coveted ‘Speed Flashes’ won by our swimmers (shown in purple). Out of 27 races, 21 lifetime best swims were achieved, just showing how well the swimmers are training to improve so much. Charlotte Williamson broke through the 40 second barrier for the first time on her 50m Freestyle in a very confident swim. Alex Henderson and Kerri Stalker both showed why they had recently been promoted squads, performing very strongly in their 50m heats of Breaststroke and Fly respectively. Biggest personal best of the day fell to Christina Orr in the 25m Freestyle where she took off a whopping 13.59 seconds. Well done to all our swimmers. Our next Fife gala is on Sunday 8th September.
