• ELST Distance Meet - Jun 25/26 @ Prestonpans
    This was the final chance of the season for a few of our swimmers to secure bronze squad times or record new PBs. Once again, our top performer was Ciaran who recorded a bronze squad time with every swim (just missing a silver time by half a sec in the 200m free), won 4 golds and a silver and picked up the best boy trophy in the 13/14 age group. Rosanna also had a great day on Sat, recording three bronze squad times from three swims. Emma tackled two tough events (200m fly and 400m IM) and made the bronze squad time in both. Laura set three good PBs including an excellent swim in the 800m free, Benji set two strong PBs in his two events and Anna set a new PB in the 200m free. Many thanks to David who gave up his whole weekend to help the swimmers and provide the vocal support on poolside.

    As the 2011 Lothian Leagues came to an exciting conclusion, we ended up winning two of the Leagues and finished 2nd in another.

  • Hearts Novice - Sun May 29 @ Leith Academy
    A very good day at Leith Academy and a very productive afternoon in particular. Gigi had an excellent day, winning two golds and a silver from only three events. Jenna won a gold (winning the breast just ahead of Gigi, so we got both gold and silver), Thomas won two silvers in his only two events, with Sophie and Caitlyn both winning a bronze. The relay team (Ella, Erin C, Gigi, Robin, Sophie and Thomas) also won a bronze. We also saw some excellent PBs from Ella (breast), Thomas (free), Robin (breast) and Sophie (fly). It was Zoe's first ever gala, so all of her swims were PBs (and she clearly enjoyed her day).

  • East District Open Champs - May 14/15 @ Tollcross
    A relatively rare chance for some of our swimmers to compete in a long course meet, this year's ED Open was at Tollcross (which, of course, is not actually in the East). Our top performer over the weekend was Ciaran, who won our one medal (in the 100m fly) and also secured a 4th place and two 5th places. Both John and Iona just missed a medal, finishing 4th in the 200m back and 50m breast respectively. Ciaran recorded PBs in all but one of his events, Iona had two PBs, Anna C, Nieve and Scott managed one each as did Ellie with an excellent 3 sec improvement in her 50m fly.

  • Haddington Total Swimmer - Sun May 8 @ Pretonpans
    We only had seven swimmers at this year's Total Swimmer meet but still managed to have two finalists in this high standard event. Both Emma H and Iona qualified for the 200m IM final in their respective age groups with Emma collecting a bronze medal. The quality of our girls swimming (Erin, Nieve, Jade, Morgan and Eilidh along with our two finalists) was such that all events saw the majority of them recording a PB - in the 100m IM there were 6 PBs, 50m back had 6, so did 50m fly, 50m breast had 5 and the 50m free produced 4 PBs.
