Lothian Leagues, Sun May 3 @ Whitburn

Posted by Portobello ASC on Monday, May 11, 2015,
Change of venue due to the closure of Prestonpans and we had a full squad in attendance.
Robyn had a great morning, taking 2nd and 3rd in her two events. Grace C and Sam both finished 3rd and Meagan broke the time band in a great 100m IM.
In the afternoon, we had a number of 1st places for Gigi, Kittty, Rory V, Miko and Archie. Also, finally, Gigi broke a club record setting a new mark in the 200m free for 14 yr olds. Well done Gigi, a thoroughly deserved result.
