CARNEGIE swim star Ellie Turner maintained her promising season by medalling at every event she took part in at the East District Age Group Championships.

The talented 14-year-old picked up from where she left off last year at the 200 metres meet at the Michael Woods Centre in Glenrothes, which took place over the weekend of January 14-15.

In round two of the championships – the first of which took place in November – there were several impressive performances by Carnegie swimmers but Turner’s four-medal haul was particularly notable.

Having led a club one-two in the girls’ 14 years backstroke with Morven Lister in times of 2:18.68 and 2:23.35 respectively, the West Fife duo took their dominant showing into the final.

Turner took the title in outstanding fashion, clocking a time of 2:17.62 to finish six-and-a-half seconds clear of Lister (2:24.17), who collected silver.

Another gold medal was collected in the butterfly in stylish fashion as she set a new PB of 2:29.60 but she was denied a hat-trick of victories by just one tenth of a second in the freestyle, finishing second behind Heart of Midlothian’s Ellie Reilly (2:08.39) in 2:08.49.

That silver medal was a achieved with a five-second PB and another was to follow in the breaststroke – this time by six seconds – as she claimed a hard-fought bronze in 2:46.18.

So far in this season’s East District Championships, Turner has collected five gold, two silver and a bronze and has set herself up nicely for the final round of sprints, which will take place at Edinburgh’s Royal Commonwealth Pool from February 3-5.

Not to be outdone, other Carnegie swimmers enjoyed excellent swims and medal success, including Lister, who added a bronze in the butterfly to her backstroke silver in a time of 2:33.97.

In the boys’ events, Greig Rowe picked up a bronze medal in the 16 years breaststroke in a time of 2:28.26, while James Collyer, having qualified for the final in second place, also won a bronze medal in the boys’ 17 years senior backstroke.

He narrowly missed out on a silver to Fins’ Kyle Pate, whose time of 2:08.39 just eclipsed Collyer’s 2:09.08.

Imogen Paton, Finlay Hay, Emma Russell, Jessica McKee Levi Wilson, Calum Hillis, Joanna Rae and Eilidh Collyer all achieved final places with great swims.
