The Regional Swimming Championships were held last month at the Ryan Centre in Stranraer. A team of 23 swimmers from Dumfries Amateur Swim Club attended this event. It was great to see local clubs competing in a friendly, encouraging atmosphere.
Teams from Annan, Stranraer, Newton Stewart, Castle Douglas and Kirkcudbright joined together for a fun full on day of action. Some swimmers swam back to back events, completing a race to walk round and get straight back on the block for the next one!
The team performed exceptionally well taking time to focus on technique and skills. The bus home was like Aladdin’s cave with a staggering 99 medals between them.52 Gold, 31 Silver and 16 Bronze. Special mention goes to Aimee Harkness, Owen McBurnie and Ava Simpson, who won gold in all their events.
Thanks must go to Team managers Susan Copeland and Marc Scott, Head Coach Anthony Ryan and all the volunteers who helped make the meet a great success.
