TRANENT XMAS GALA, Sat Dec 10 @ Prestonpans

Posted by Portobello ASC on Monday, December 12, 2011,
A fun day at Prestonpans, with judges wearing santa hats and lots of medals being won. We only had three swimmers in the morning but we had 17 competing in the afternoon - and, we had 5 coaches there in the afternoon which must be a record.

Ella and Gigi set the tone in the morning session, with Ella winning a full set of medals (Gold, Silver and Bronze) while Gigi won a Silver and 3 Bronze.

In the afternoon it was generally the older swimmers who won the most. JJ had an excellent sessio...

EAST DISTRICTS CHAMPS, Dec 3/4 @ Glenrothes

Posted by Portobello ASC on Tuesday, December 6, 2011,
This was the 200m event weekend and we had a dozen swimmers who qualified (although a couple missed the meet due to injuries).
We had four different swimmers who made finals, which is an excellent achievement, and two (Rory and Iona) who collected medals.

Rory also made the back final, JJ had a great swim in the heats of the...

However, we couldn't sustain that improvement and slipped back to fini...

CLUB TROPHIES, Sun Nov 27 @ Porty Pool

Posted by Portobello ASC on Saturday, December 3, 2011,
We had a good turn-out for this year's trophy events and a full compliment of officials to cover all five lanes. The Open events produced some excellent races, with the boys 100m breast and the girls 100m IM being the most exciting. Both of the 100m IM trophies were retained by last year's winners (Iona and John), as was the 100m fly for boys (Rory M). New winners were Nieve (100m back and fly) and JJ (100m breast, breaking a run of six years where the winners name began with S).

In the P...
