LAT­EST re­sults from Lochaber Leisure Cen­tre swim team:

In­ver­ness Graded Meet - This is a com­pe­ti­tion for swim­mers who do not have a time faster than qual­i­fy­ing time for the North District Cham­pi­onship. The team had 30 new per­sonal bests from 39 swims and two qual­i­fy­ing times for North District.

Han­nah, 11, won Gold in the 100m In­di­vid­ual Med­ley, Sil­ver (100m Front Crawl), Lau­ren (12) Gold 100m But­ter­fly and 6th in 100m Back Crawl.

El­iz­a­beth, 11, had two great in­di­vid­ual swims, fin­ish­ing 5th (100m Breast­stroke) and 8th (100m Back Crawl). Caitlin, 11, had three in­di­vid­ual events and got new best times in all of the swims - 100m Front Crawl, Back Crawl and IM. Rhi­anna, 12, in her only in­di­vid­ual swim, got a great new best for 100m Front Crawl time, only 0:16s short of break­ing the 1:20 bar­rier, plac­ing her 7th. Jude, 12, in her three in­di­vid­ual swims (100m IM, Front Crawl and Back Crawl) got two new per­sonal bests and three top 10 plac­ings.

Eilidh, 11, who af­ter tak­ing seven sec­onds off her 100m In­di­vid­ual Med­ley took 39 sec­onds off her 100m Breast­stroke, de­mol­ished all op­po­si­tion in her heat.

Kai, 12, only had the 100m Breast­stroke race other than re­lays. Kai took an amaz­ing 22 sec­onds off his pre­vi­ous time. Al­is­tair, 13, got Gold in the 100m Back Crawl, which again was pre­vi­ously al­ways a weaker stroke for Al­is­tair, so to win Gold and get a six sec­ond per­sonal best in a time that would have qual­i­fied him for this year’s cham­pi­onships is a job well done. Gabriel, 13, had good swims in the 100m IM and Front Crawl, both new per­sonal bests, and also a par­tic­u­larly good swim in the first leg of the win­ning IM re­lay team. Al­loa Meet: 13/14-year- olds. Alice-Ann: New per­sonal bests for 100 Back Crawl, 200m IM and 100m Breast­stroke. Siob­han: New per­sonal bests in 100 Back Crawl, 200 IM and 100m Breast­stroke. Mil­lie: New best time in 100m Back Crawl.

Poppy had a re­mark­able 10 sec­ond im­prove­ment in her 100 But­ter­fly.

Jenna: New best times in her 100m Breast­stroke, 200m IM and 100m Back Crawl as well as great swims in all Front Crawl races.

Al­is­tair got a new per­sonal best in the 200 IM. This shows an im­prove­ment in all four strokes but also in stamina over the 200m dis­tance.

Aimee got two new club records in her 200m IM (Gold medal), 100m But­ter­fly (Sil­ver) and Gold in 100 Breast­stroke.

Jack: New club records in the 100m Breast­stroke and 200 IM, as well as a bronze medal in the 100m Back Crawl. Wil­liam: New per­sonal bests in the 100m Front Crawl and 100m Breast­stroke. Good swims and def­i­nitely bet­ter to come.

The four x 50m Front Crawl re­lay team of Aimee, Siob­han, Evie-jay and Jenna won the open re­lay event by 0:2 of a sec­ond beat­ing Dundee City, City of Glas­gow and Perth City teams.

Al­loa graded meet on Satur­day and Al­loa Age Group meet on Sun­day, both at Stir­ling.

The club had three swim­mers at the Graded meet. Kai, 12, had an amaz­ing haul of one Gold, three Bronze and a fourth place medal in his five races. He also bagged three new per­sonal bests. He then re­turned on Sun­day to take 14 sec­onds off his pre­vi­ous best times in his 100m Front Crawl, beat­ing his pre­vi­ous per­sonal best from the Satur­day, 200m IM and a new age group record in his 100m But­ter­fly, which would also be a new record for the club’s 13-yearolds.

Sham­mon, 8, has great times so three new per­sonal bests from her 50m swims were well mer­ited and no dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tions were also bonus.

Sean, 10, had two swims and a new per­sonal best in his 100m Back Crawl, and fin­ished 7th in the 50 Breast­stroke. Lochaber col­lected three golds and two bronze medals, 28 per­sonal bests, eight club age group records and four new club records.

The 11/12 age group: Evie-Jay, 12, kept tak­ing time off her al­ready im­pres­sive per­sonal bests in her 100m Front and Back as well as her 200 IM. This was Evie’s first com­pe­ti­tion in the 12 age group. She still man­aged to get a 4th place in the Back crawl. She also has three other good swims in­clud­ing a great re­lay leg.

Danni, 11, also com­pet­ing in the 11/12 age group, had a num­ber of great swims, in­clud­ing new best times in her 100m Fly and Back as well as 200 IM. Danni has been train­ing hard since her in­clu­sion into the High­land Swim Team with an in­creased fo­cus to her train­ing.

Rhi­anna, 12), was the only swim­mer to get a best time for her 50m Frontcrawl so to take al­most two sec­onds off such a short event was a ma­jor achieve­ment. Indigo, 12, took 12 sec­onds from his pre­vi­ous 200 IM time, 11 sec­onds off his 100m Back Crawl and three sec­onds off his 100m Front Crawl.
