TALENTED InCAS members continued their impressive form by bagging medals and personal bests galore at last weekend’s Lothian Junior Graded Meet.

Having made a splash at both the East District Age Group and Livingston Development Gala in successive weekends, 16 swimmers took to the pool in Prestonpans and returned home with eight gold, four silver and three bronze medals.

As well as 15 podium places, the in-form youngsters also secured 21 top-six place medals and an incredible 48 Personal Bests (PBs) from 54 swims after an outstanding competition for the Inverkeithing-based club.

Sophie Ingram led the medal glut in the girls’ 12 years age category, winning gold in the 100 metres back crawl in a time of 1:27.47, and posted four new best times.

There was three times the winning feeling for Ellice Forker, 11, as she took top spot in the 100m back crawl (1:29.31), the 100m breaststroke (1:41.42) and the 100m front crawl (1:18.13), and, for good measure, added a silver in the 100m butterfly (1:35.04), with all four times new PBs.

Mia Walker competed in the 13-plus age group and won two golds – the 100m back crawl (1:21.54) and 100m breaststroke (1:31.65) – with PB times, while 15-year-old Chloe Millar was a gold-medallist in the 100m front crawl (1:12.90), a silver medallist in the 100m back crawl (1:23.53) and a bronze medal winner in the 100m butterfly (1:31.25), with the former two swims PBs.

In the same age group, Erin Hutton, 13, clocked PBs of 1:25.74 and 1:13.30 to win gold and bronze respectively in the 100m butterfly and 100m front crawl, and she won a sixth-place medal with a PB in the 100m breaststroke.

Katelyn MacNeil, with PBs, took silver in the 100m butterfly (1:30.69) and bronze in the 100m breaststroke (1:37.98), 10-year-old Seth Tomlinson won silver in the 50m back crawl with a PB of 44.55 and a sixth-place medal in the 50m front crawl, while Nathan Van Den Brock, 11, achieved four PBs, including in the 100m breaststroke, where he won a sixth-place medal.

Other swimmers to achieve PBs were Freya Knox, 11, with three, and nine-year-olds Emma Henderson, Rebecca Owens, Sorcha Morrison, Niamh Kirkbright, Abby Justice and Evie Graham, who secured four, three, three, four and four respectively.
