Four swimmers from Ythan ASC recently made the trip to Inverness for the North District Age Group Meet which is held over two full days in the pool.

It is a great achievement to even qualify for an event meet at this level, writes a contributor.

Euan Currie, Lauren Duncan, Emily Riach and Jessica Riach did themselves and the club proud with some very strong swims and all of them achieved some noteworthy personal bests. Special mention must go to Euan Currie who not only got an impressive personal best in his 100m backstroke, but was also rewarded with a bronze medal and a qualification time for the Scottish National Age Group Meet in March.

His weekend finished on a high with him also setting a new club record in his 50m backstroke.
