At the start of the month 17 eager swimmers from Dumfries Amateur Swim Club attended the Summer Splash Meet at Sunderland Aquatic Centre. A favourite venue for many. This was a team event set in a 50m pool. This provided further opportunities for athletes to improve their long course times before the season draws to a close.
As always our youngsters rose to the challenge collecting 30 medals between them: 6 Gold , 14 Silver and 10 Bronze.
Medal winners were Lauren Anderson , Lexi Anderson, Tyler Barnard, Lindsay Cameron, Ryan McHardy, Alex and Luke Scott, Austin Sinclair and Reuben Kelly. In addition many personal best times were achieved. Congratulations to all, You are a credit to the club.
Thanks goes to coach Phil Stewart and Team Managers, Dawn Barnard and Marc Scott for supporting the team over the course of the weekend.
The pool will close at the end of the month to give swimmers a chance to rest and recharge ready for the new season ahead.
