In the 15/16 years age group Abbigail McArthur won the 100m backstroke, was second in the 50m back and third in the 200m freestyle. Heather Stevenson was third in the 200m IM in the same age group.

Commenting after the 2 day Meet coach Karen Kelly said “Tollcross is a magnificent facility and it was great for our young swimmers to compete at the venue again. We had a few swimmers missing due to holidays but the ones who enjoyed a good Meet can be satisfied with their results. There are no short cuts to success, you need to apply yourself in training to give the best of yourself on competition day.”
