In addition in what was a wonderful championship for the Royal Burgh club, new best ever times were set by Lanark Amateur Swimming Club members Chelsea Millward, Casey Thomson, Helena Ramage and Claudia Wood.

After the meet, delighted Lanark ASC coach Karen Kelly said: “Poolside conditions were very cold all day but the swimmers took it in their stride and posted some excellent personal bests.”
