Please see below confirmed swims and scratches for this meet. It was heavily oversubscribed so the organisers have asked if anyone wants to withdraw from any swims please let me know asap so they can fill in from the reserve list.

Its an Open meet so swimmers will swim in order of entry time regardless of age but medals are awarded in age group categories (I think!)

SCR – scratch means definitely not accepted to swim. ALT means a reserve – will get a swim if someone else withdraws.

A couple of swimmers have no accepted swims – dont be put off, this is a very competitive meet especially for the older swimmers.

The list can be accessed here – 2018 stirling autumn meet confirmed swims (incl. alts & scratches) (1)

Congratulations to our mini-league team for coming a very creditable 2nd place in the B final in Ayr on Saturday.

The team performed excellently – and the crowd contributed to what was a great atmosphere for competitive swimming.

A big thanks once again to all the coaches, team managers and officials for their hard work in delivering another succesful season of mini-league for our younger swimmers.
