Midlothian Swimming Club

Warrender Meet Report – March 09

This meet took place at Glenrothes over two days with the 9 & 10years swimming on the Saturday and the 11 & 12Years on the Sunday.

This was a great meet and a challenge to a lot of the swimmers as there were many clubs competing and not knowing what to expect. After having such a great success at the Lothian Region Leagues only the month before it was hard what to predict the results at this meet.

With the clocks changing on the Sunday and the early start there were a few bleary eyed swimmers over the two days however, they did not let us down. They were all in good spirits and a credit to the club.

There was a total of 94 swims with 89 P.B.’s being produced over the two days and 13 of these were in double figures. There was 1 swim that almost matched the swimmers time and 4 swims that were just a margin outside.

11 Medals were picked up on the day = 1-Gold Medal, 1,- Silver Medal, 4- Bronze Medal, 1- 4th Place Medal,1 – 5th Place Medal, 3-6th Place Medal.
