***ELST Novice Meet***
Another weekend done and we’ve had more racing - this time more based at our less experienced end of the club. We had swimmers representing bronze, silver and gold squads as we made another trip to Prestonpans! πŸ’™πŸ’›
Over the day, we saw some fantastic swimming with great skills on show. While we had plenty personal bests in terms of times, our swimmers got a chance to try out some of the things learned in training for the first time while racing. We also had a first competition for a swimmer today and I’m delighted to say she rocked it! πŸ’ͺπŸŠβ€β™€οΈ
A special mention to our medal winners today - Lucy, Meadow, Aidan, Olivia, Anna, Ritchie and Struan. πŸ…πŸ…πŸ…
Thanks to East Lothian Swim Team for having us at your meet and we’re already looking forward to next year!

***EDAGs Round Up***

Over for another year! This weekend saw us competing in the final round of the East District Age Group Championships. This round was 100s and 200 IM at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.

We’re delighted to say our successes continued on from the last 3 rounds. We saw several swimmers competing in the long course pool for the first time and bag some excellent personal bests. Zach, Luke H, Luke P, Hannah W, Eilidh A, Grace, Meagan, Iona and Bridget all made finals and 6 of these swimmers also medalled - well done!!

A huge mention for our own Zach who not only managed to win the overall best boy in his age group over the four rounds, but also won the best overall swim based on FINA points - winning his coach at @eastlothianswim Jamie an award in the process!

The club finished 5th overall in the region which is a tremendous achievement and one we are already looking to build upon. The success of our club is down to the hard work from the swimmers and volunteers who give up their time every week to give into our small community - thank you!

Well done to our friends at @swimtranent and @haddingtondistrictasc for competing so well also - the three clubs finishing 4th, 5th and 6th. For clubs of our size, this is no small achievement. Also, well done to the coaching team at @eastlothianswim for their continued work taking our swimmers to the next stage in their development. See you next year, EDAGs!

***ELST Age Group Meet***
A fantastic couple of days in Prestonpans for the @eastlothianswim age group meet. A mixture of all distance up to 400m means we had several swimmers competing in events for the first time. Everyone did themselves so proud by smashing times and winning lots of medals across both days.
A wee shout out to two swimmers in particular this weekend. Kayla, who kept on giving her all despite losing her goggles in one race and then her hat in another! Also Flora who competed for the first time in a LONG time. They both smashed it!
Well done everyone!
