Lothian Swimmers Perform Well at SDS Junior Swim Champs
Six swimmers represented Lothian at the SDS Junior Swimming Championships on Wednesday 5th November at Grangemouth Sports Complex.
This year's Lothian team was made up of swimmers from Lothian Racers and Livingston & District Dolphins Disability Squad, with West Lothian swimmers Aaron and Corey McDowell making their debut at the event. The youngsters, who attend East Calder PS were quick to get into their stride with both brothers picking up medals - Aaron just pipping Corey to first place in the 25m FS Front race. A strong Lothian Racers contingent was also present, with Sophie Gault, Jamie O'Boyle and Kris Fleming representing the club and region well throughout with a number of medals travelling back East at the end of the day.
There was success for a few ex Lothian Racers athletes, with Kris Flemings older brother and Warrender Baths swimmer Jamie continuing his impressive development and picking up medals in a number of races including the 100m FS Front. Another ex racer, Beth Johnston, representing the Borders had a fantastic day and kept up her recent form in the pool - breaking a long standing record in the 50m FS Back (39.15s).
Congratulations to all swimmers.
