North Ayrshire swimmers put in a series of dominant performances to claim 43 medals at the Ayrshire Secondary School Championships.


Although officially representing their high schools they swam in club colours and were coached on poolside by Alan Dickson and Jacqui Tarran.


We had 28 swimmers competing at the Citadel in Ayr and now 10 of them can call themselves Ayrshire’s official age group champions, some of them claiming multiple titles.
