Stirling” Effort by Gala ASC.

After a couple of weeks rest from competitive swimming Gala ASC were back to their winning best this weekend at the Stirling Junior Open  Swim Meet  held at The Peak Sports Village on the 7th & 8th June.
4 Swimmers travelled up to Stirling and over the weekend put in a true Braveheart performance with some fantastic swims.
Amy Headspeath started the charge gaining PBs in 100 Backstroke, 100 IM and 100 Free and Bethany Hamilton kept the momentum going gaining a PB in 400 IM and put in strong swims for the 100 Breast/Free and Fly and 200 IM.
 Not to be out shone by the girls Andrew Watt gained some fantastic PBs in the 400 IM, 100 Back, 100 Breast and 200 Free with strong swims in 100 Free, 100 Fly and 200 IM. 
Maili Brown wrapped up the weekend with a strong swim in the 400 IM where she managed to gain another Club Record with a time of 6.08. 
When the dust had settled our weary but jubilant swimmers had managed to take away 14 medals between them (3 Gold, 6 Silver and 5 Bronze), with Andrew Watt also collecting the trophy for Overall 'Best Boy' age 12....A truly fantastic effort by all swimmers.
A special thanks to Louise Mercer for looking after the swimmers all weekend.
The Club Reporter would also like to apologies to Jake Shepherd for an incorrect spelling of his name in the last report.

                                                                           Gala Swimmers “Dun” Well.

Gala ASC Swimmers followed on from last week’s success at Stirling with another great performance at the Duns 500 meet this weekend. Five swimmers competed and once again did the club proud with their performances.
Laura Frizzel gained PBs in the 100 IM and 50 Breast with good swims against tough opposition  in the 50 Back/Fly & Free. Jack McDonald who has started competing with the club gained a PB in the 50 Fly and recorded good first times for the 100 IM, 50 Breast and 50 Fly....well done Jack.
Elsbeth Roper gained a PB in the 100 IM and put in strong swims in the 50 Back, Breast/Fly and Free collecting 4 silver medals in the process. Andrew Watt had a PB in the 100 Breast and 100 IM and with good swims in the 100 Back/Free & Fly walked away with 2 Gold and 3 Silver.
The star of the show for Gala was Sophie Wilson who gained PBs in the 50 Back/Breast and 100 IM and with strong swims in the 50 Fly and Free finished the day with 3 Gold, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze plus also collecting the “Best” Girl Cup in the 11 and under age group.
With a tally of 14 medals Gala finished 3rd overall which was fantastic considering they had the smallest team count compared to the other clubs who competed.
Beth Johnston and Finlay Lindores were also in action at the weekend when they represented the East of Scotland at the Regional Development Meet in Aberdeen. Beth Gained a PB in her Back to win Silver and put in strong swims in the 50 Free and 100 IM collecting Bronze for both. Finlay received full classification and put in a truly fantastic performance cumulating in a great PB in the 50 Free. Well done to you both...the long trek to Aberdeen was certainly worth it..
