Medal Success at National Swimming Competitions

19 April 2018 | Tagged: Senior School, Sports, Competitions

High School pupils have impressed in the pool recently, with medal success at both the Scottish Inter-District Synchronised Swimming and Scottish National Age Group Championships at the end of March.


Four pupils competed as part of the Synchro Caledonia training squad at the Scottish Inter-District Synchronised Swimming Championships in Aberdeen on Saturday 24th March.

Third Year pupils Gabriella Smart, Tabitha Steven and Lana Wallace finished as runners-up in the Free Team event, while there were also Silver medals for Tabitha in the 13/14/15 Years Solo event and Emily Gill (Transitus) in both the U12 Solo and U12 Duet events. Additionally, Tabitha won Bronze in the 13/14/15 Years Figures and the 13/14/15 Duets with teammate Gabriella. The girls, pictured above, swim for Clydebank Synchronized Swimming Club and were also swimming for the West of Scotland team that won the competition and took home the Elizabeth Hamilton trophy.

All four attended a prestigious training camp in Cobham during the Easter break at which they were able to learn from English national team coaches and swimmers. They will also be part of the Synchro Caledonia team that have been asked to put on a display at this year’s PREPASS Primary Swimming Gala in May and will represent the team in competitions in England later in the year.


Later that week, a number of swimmers competed at the Scottish National Age Group Championships at Tollcross International Swimming Centre from Wednesday 28th March to Sunday 1st April.

Representing City of Glasgow Swimming Club, Anna Fleming of Sixth Year competed in multiple Womens' 17-18 Years races. She was victorious in the 100m Freestyle event, runner up in the 50m Freestyle, and finished 3rd and 4th in the 50m and 100m Butterfly finals, respectively.

Elsewhere, a number of S1 pupils representing Milngavie and Bearsden Swimming Club competed well and reached the finals of their 11-13 Years events. Jamie Ritchie finished 4th in the Boys' 200m Breaststroke, 5th in the Boys' 100m Breaststroke and 6th in the Boys' 50m Backstroke finals. Kirsty Wicklow was 6th in the Girls' 100m Breaststroke final and Fergus Currie finished 13th in the Boys' 400m Freestyle final.
