Lanark Amateur Swimmig Club (ASC)’s Katie Towers continued the Club’s rich tradition in breaststroke at District Championships when she won the eleven years age group 50m title at Tollcross International Swimming Centre. Millie McArthur (13) was in excellent form winning 2 silver (200m backstroke, 200m IM) and three bronze medals (50m free, 200m free and 800m free). The Club’s other medallist was Justin Bone (12) who was third in the 1500m freestyle. Three other swimmers reached finals; district debutant Alistair McDairmant, Craig Shaw and Ellarose Stewart.

Posting personal best times were Emma McCafferty in her first ever district meet, Samantha Pratt, Abbie Barnstaple, Ayla Miller, Anya McLaughlin, Caitlyn Hamilton, Niamh Jeffrey, Abbigail McArthur, Mia Rae, Erin Snow, Ross Carswell, Ross Dunlop, Euan McLeod and Mitchell Stevenson.

After the Championships coach Karen Kelly said “Well done to Katie winning her first District title. A special mention to Coach Stephen Pratt for his work with Katie and the younger swimmers. There was a lot of good performances and we now turn our attention to two short course Meets in February.”
