  • East District Time Trials - Oct 5/6 @ Prestonpans

    A busy weekend for a number of our swimmers and we had some excellent performances as our most able swimmers sought entry times for this season's East District Age Group champs.

    In total we achieved 33 consideration times across 63 swims so slightly better than 50% success rate. Gigi and Ollie led the way, both swimming beautifully and get 5 consideration times from 5 swims. Kitty also made 5 times, from 6 swims. Rory and Archie only swam the Saturday but had 100% success with 3 from 3. Poor Zoe had the bad luck of missing one target by 0.08 secs and another by 0.31secs.

    Some of our improvements were astounding, notably Zoe in the 200m free and Gigi in the 400m free. Ollie (200m back), Lucy (400m free), Sophie (200m breast) and Steven (200m IM) all recorded improvements of over 10 secs.

    Finally, just a few days before her 15th birthday, Kitty broke both of her own club 14yrs records in the 100m + 200m fly.

  • Coverdale Novice Trophy - Friday Sep 27 @ Haddington

    We were back at Haddington pool for the first round of this season's Coverdale Trophy. We had a good squad of swimmers with us, including quite a few competing in their first proper gala. Everyone performed really well, in fact so well that we scored the least number of points because so many swimmers swam faster that expected.

    Our most productive stroke was breaststoke and the one where we scored least points was freestyle. Thomas was our highest individual points scorer and our biggest improvements (from those with previous times) came from Ellie, Emma and Rory M. We also had a big turn-out from the Raitt clan, with all three competing and mum helping on poolside. And one of our smallest swimmers (Andrei) was also our quickest swimmer in the early heats of the back and free.

    The next round is at Portobello on Friday Nov 22.
