Lanark ASC at Tollcross

Medal winners Evi Mackie and Millie McArthur

A 20 strong Lanark ASC squad competed at round 1 of the West District Long Course Championships at Tollcross ISC, Glasgow.

In her first ever District Championships, Evi Mackie (11/12years), won a silver in the 200m butterfly and bronze in the 100m butterfly. Millie McArthur (14) was second in the 100m backstroke and third in the 400m IM. Top 6 points scorers for the Club were Ross Carswell, Cameron Bruce and Niamh Jeffrey. Other finalists were Katie Towers, Caitlyn Hamilton, Abbigail McArthur and Mia Rae.

After the Meet, Coach Karen Kelly said “Evi swam very well to win 2 medals at her debut DIstricts but more importantly it was the quality of the swims she had. Millie can always be relied on to put scores on the board for the Club. Ross and Cameron had terrific results throughout the weekend. Cameron has battled bag from illness recently and can be proud of his efforts.”
