Lanark ASC future swimming stars at annual Peebles Meet

Lanark ASC Peebles Meet

25 young Lanark ASC swimmers travelled to the borders for the annual Peebles Stars of the future meet. The squad ages ranging from eight to twelve won 49 top 6 awards.

Leading the charge were gold medalists Alastair McDairmant (3), Ian Henderson and Casey Thomson. Other medalists were Erin Purdon, Orlaith Jeffrey, Ruth Maxfield, Blair Beverly, Owen Lawson, Robbie McDairmant, Cora Johnstone, Holly Fell, Isla Jones, Ryan Allan, Luke Devlin, Malcolm Ormrod, Islay Cathcart, Roisin McLaughlin, Douglas Ormrod and Calum Smith. The Lanark squad set 73 new best ever times.

After the Meet coach Karen Kelly “It was a good all round effort from the squad. Many of them had only ever competed at Lanark or at the SL Development Meets at Larkhall. It was another learning curve for them.”
