A squad from Cupar and District Swimming Club travelled to The Peak Sports Village at Stirling last weekend for the Alloa Graded Meet.

An excellent weekend of top-class performances from all swimmers produced 19 medals and four ‘too fast’ awards.

Euan Baillie led by example by picking up medals and too fast awards on day one and achieving East District qualifying times too.

Murdo Denholm swam three out of three lifetime bests and won a bronze medal in the 50m butterfly.

Adam Young enjoyed an outstanding weekend of personal bests, picking up five medals and three too fast swims.

Findlay Baillie was on top form swimming in five races and setting personal bests in all of them.

Katie Ross took almost 15 seconds off her personal best time and Charlotte Williamson produced an excellent time in her first competitive swim over the distance.

Catriona Cleary pulled off a fantastic swim in the 100m Butterfly to set a new personal best and secure an East District qualifying time too.

Charlotte Williamson produced three personal best swims with her highlight being the 200m backstroke where she picked up the gold medal.

Club Vice-Captain Ben Levy produced two exceptional swims.

Ben slashed over 20 seconds off his 200m freestyle time but his best swim was to follow in the 50m free where he smashed through the 30-second barrier swimming a 29.25.

Both swims saw Ben pick up Gold medals.

Lewis Baillie found himself very much on form over the weekend with six swims, four personal bests and two medals.

On Sunday, the squad was joined by Lindsay and Louise Moncrieff.

Lindsay set three lifetime bests with the highlight being the 200m Backstroke where she took eight seconds off her entry time.

Louise also achieved three lifetime bests from all her events.
