West District Short Course Junior Age Group Championships
Early last month a group of 10 swimmers from Dumfries Amateur Swim Club attended The West District Short Course Junior Age Group Championships. All Swimmers from Dumfries ASC battled hard over the 2 day event where they pushed themselves and each other to the limit.
Qualifying and competing at The West Districts is the first stepping stone to National events.
A fast competitive weekend of racing for all resulting in 26 medals - 9 Gold, 14 Silver and 3 Bronze from Lauren Anderson, Lexi Anderson, Niamh Green, Elliot and Austin Sinclair, Alex Scott, Cameron Gordon and Reuben Kelly.
Pb’s were smashed ! Team spirit and determination was at an all time high. Niamh Green takes the 13 year old Dumfries ASC record for 200m backstroke.
Special mention goes to Cameron Gordon who broke the Scottish Age Group Record, 12 year old boys, in 100 fly . A phenomenal achievement!
Training continues in preparation for long course season in January. Swimmers will train over the festive period and work off those turkey dinners!
