Cumbernauld Christmas Sprints
Early December, 23 swimmers from Dumfries ASC got into the Christmas spirit with some sprint racing at Cumbernauld.
50 or 100m sprints for each stroke was the format of the one day event. The bells were ringing out with pb’s and medals! Congratulations to Lexi Anderson who took 3 gold, Alex Scott 1 of each, his brother Luke not to be outdone shone in the 50 back taking gold.
Cameron Gordon pulled a cracker, storming ahead with 3 golds and another Scottish Age Group Record in 50 fly in a time of 28.76. (subject to verification from Scottish Swimming and meet accreditation) Incredible!
Some technical faults with the computer system meant an extra hour was added onto the day and the last swimmers swam the relay at 6.30pm. Despite this the boys Rhys Edwards, Cameron Gordon, Alexander Bailey, Alex Scott, Rueben Kelly and Tyler Barnard gave their all and pushed hard taking 3rd place.
Thanks goes to Team Managers Chris Kelly and Tanya Harkness, coaches Ross McCafferty and Ailsa Nelson for supporting the youngsters.
