West District Pre-SNAGS News Report
Swimmers from the Cumbernauld Swimming Club made the short trip down the M73 to the Tollcross International Swimming Centre this past weekend in a final attempt to secure qualification times for the Scottish National Age Group Championships which will be held at the end of the month. Most of our swimmers had already secured their places in the events they wish to swim but this final opportunity hosted by the SASA West District enabled them to potentially improve their times and thus their seeding at the National Championships.
In an event designed solely to improve the times of the swimmers, our athletes still managed to grab a few medals along the way. Craig Greenock again showed his prowess in the Butterfly events by winning the Boys Age 14 and above 100 metre event and earning a Silver in the 200 metre Butterfly. Team mate Michael Flynn powered his way to a Silver medal in the 800 metre Freestyle.
Emma Creaney swam a personal best time in the 11-13 year old Girls 200 metre Freestyle to secure a Silver medal, while also finishing 6th in the 100 metre Freestyle in a personal best time. Madison Gallacher also grabbed a medal in the 11-13 girls 100 metre Butterfly, while earning another personal best time and finishing 4th in the 100 metre freestyle.
Well done to all our swimmers, many of whom earned personal bests over the weekend and several who managed to earn a place in the National Age Group Championships. ty52 \ls
