JESSICA Thomson (Westhill Academy) and Shannon Crawford (Kemnay Academy) were Garioch’s representatives at the Scottish Schools Swimming Championships at Dollan Aqua Centre, East Kilbride on Saturday, (January 26).

Following local qualifying heats, the competition brings together the top 12 swimmers in Scotland - in the age bands for each event. The swimmers can only choose two events to compete in. Both girls swam well in their two featured races, with Jess recording a second in the 200 fly and fourth in the 200 freestyle, and Shannon a fifth in the 200 backstroke and a ninth in the 100 backstroke. Well done to both swimmers.
