East District Age Group Championships – First Round

The first round of these championships were held at Glenrothes last weekend and Midlothian swimmers made a fantastic start.

Lisa Fraser became District Champion in the 14/15 years 200m Backstroke where she led from the start and eased to first place in the final.

In the corresponding Boys event, Robbie Dalgetty produced a very gutsy swim to claim the Bronze medal and the previous day, Beth Denholm won Silver in the 10/11 years 200m freestyle with a fantastic swim.

There were many more good performances over the weekend and a full report will be published later.
