Last Sunday GASC were represented at the annual Aberdeen ASC Nifty 50’s meet at Aberdeen Sports Village by twelve swimmers.
The five girls and seven boys raced hard and achieved 39 PB’s between them.
Worthy of special mention are Ellen MacDonald, Kyle and Fraser who swam personal bests in all five of their events. Also to Catherine who reached the final of the 14 and under 50m Backstroke event. There was also a strong performance from the Girls relay team which consisted of Ceri, Catherine, Ellen and Tessa who during their race all beat the times they achieved in the individual events.
There was a great atmosphere at the meet with a decent appreciative crowd and especially during the Skins events everybody including nearly all the swimmers and coaches were cheering on their favourite swimmers. In the Girls Skins the Garioch crowd cheered on ex GASC swimmer Orla Adams to victory in a hard fought final against Caroline McIntosh from Bridge of Don.
The Garioch swimmers attending were: Catherine, James, Tessa, Layton, Isaac, Oscar, Amy, Ceri, Ellen MacDonald, Ben, Kyle and Fraser
Thanks again to coaches Richard and Craig who had another busy weekend going between Buckie and Aberdeen and also to all Garioch officials who attended
