There was a massive convoy of cars which headed up to Buckie on 12th Nov, a total of 27 swimmers from the club were attending and for some it was their first meeting. Swimmers age 8-11 were competing individually as well as some very raucous relays.
We won nine medals in total, heading the Garioch medal haul was Ceri Gillespie, with 1st in 50m free and 2nd in 50m fly, back and breast. Johanna Mackenzie was 1st in 50m back and 2nd in 50m breast, Isla Garden was 3rd in 50m back, for the boys Ben McLaughlin was 2nd in 50m breast and unlucky with two further 4th’s and James Boddie 3rd in 25m back.
As you would expect there were some tremendous PB’s rewarding the swimmers recent hard work, in the relay it was a mixed result from the mixed 10-11 squad, winning the medley but getting a DQ for the free. The 8-9 squad were consistent with 2 5th places.
The full squad was Jesseka Beaumont, James Boddie, Layton Burr, Isaac Chirnside, Oscar Chirnside, Alex Clark, Amy Coutts, Amy Cowan, Freya Cummine, Kayla Dinnin, Isla Garden, Ceri Gillespie, Innes Gow, Nula Gow, Lily Elise Graham, Grace Hay, Madeline King, Ciara Liath Knowles, Johanna Mackenzie, Kenzie Masson, Ellen McDonald, Ben McLaughlin, Kyle Mitchell, Isla Overton, Heather Rae, Euan Robertson and Luke Wraight.
Thanks as ever go to the coaches and all the parents who helped by timekeeping, judging or taxi driving.
