Saturday 20 and Sunday 21st saw the Garioch Amateur Swimming Club host their annual Mix-Up Meet. It is an important time of year as swimmers gear up for the biggest competition for them.
Last weekend Garioch won the top Club prize at the 2016 Elgin Spring meet held over the weekend of 13th and 14th February. Completing the great achievements were individual successes for Matthew Dick who won best 10-11 year old boy and Nicole Ogg who achieved the best 12-13 year old girl.
This week Inverurie Smile Care announced a new partnership between themselves and the Garioch Amateur Swimming Club. They will be sponsoring the team by providing poolside clothing for all of the five swimming squads.
This weekend saw a hectic weekend of competition, with Garioch swimmers competing in no less than three separate events. Heading down to the Ponds Forge International Pool in Sheffield were Gavin Haggerwood and Joseph Miley, getting some long course competition early in the season against some very high quality competition.
