Sunderland Meet 2016
Recently 15 swimmers from Dumfries ASC travelled down as a team to Sunderland to take part in a two day swim meet in a short course qualifier.
They had an amazing weekend and achieved 39 medals in total, 8 Gold, 11 Silver and 20 Bronze. A few of the swimmers also made Scottish National Short Course times, which is times that the swimmers are always striving after.
This can all only be gained by all of their hard work and dedication that they put into their training weekly.
Anthony Ryan who is the swimmers coach praised all the swimmers and stated that they all raced excellent in all of the events and fought hard to the end of each of their races. He was extremely pleased with each and everyone of the swimmers and couldn't have asked for a higher level of preparation and execution.
Thanks must also go to the Team Manager of the meet Hazel Hastings and driver of the bus Richard Procter. The participation of parents volunteering to help out makes the running of the club and competitions a little easier.
