Junior Section Swimming Gala 2014/15

Posted on: Monday, December 01, 2014

30 Boys from seven Companies competed in the Junior Section Swimming Gala at Leith Academy on Saturday 29th November 2014.

All Boys, parents, family members and Leaders seemed to enjoy the event. The spectating facilities running alongside the length of the pool, and being so very close to the water helped to create a good atmosphere. The Boys enjoyed playing in the pool after the competition.

Thanks must go to Brian Nisbet for drawing up the heats and acting as Starter, and to Ian Montgomery (President) who presented the trophy and medals.
