Five Top Squad swimmers competed in 13 events at Scottish National Short Course Championships in Edinburgh 9-10th December. 

Emily Burrell qualified in four sprint events. She swam two huge PB’s in 50m Breaststroke and 100 IM, matched her PB in 50m Butterfly and just missed out on a PB in 50m Freestyle by 0.01 seconds!! Great weekend of racing. 

Lewis Kestle qualified in three sprint events. He swam a PB in 50m Butterfly whilst his 50m and 100m Backstroke were both within 0.3 seconds of PB’s that he had set only 4 weeks prior at NER Championships. 

Alex Morton has continued to drop time in his 200m Butterfly, taking another 2.4 seconds off his PB! He also swam a great 100 IM (with only 10 minutes break) to be just outside of his PB set at NER Championships in Nov. 

Niamh Kay swam two solid swims in 50m and 100m Breaststroke, with a season’s best in the 100m! 

Harry Whitfield swam in his best event, 1500m Freestyle, in a very respectable 17 mins 25. Although not quite a personal best time, Harry was one of the youngest swimmers at the Open competition at just 13yrs! Amazing achievement to get the Open qualifying time at National level.
