It was an excellent day of racing for City of Glasgow members taking part in the Brodies Scottish Schools Championships at Tollcross on Saturday. Representing their individual schools, including the prestigious Glasgow School of Sport, the group returned 6 gold, 5 silver and 3 bronze medals, as well as a host of other excellent performances. Katie Shanahan and Mark Ford were both double gold medal winners as well as overall champions in the 15/16 years age group. Ford also set impressive meet records in both his swims while Shanahan did likewise in the 200 IM. Promising age grouper Ellyn MacPhee was also in great form in the 12/under section, capturing the 50 Breaststroke title in a new meet record and winning the overall top girl award for that category. Saskia Wade won the remaining gold medal by capturing the 13/14 years 100 Freestyle title, narrowly missing out on the meet record. A summary of the key results follows:

As many of you are now aware, the date, venue and programme of Stirling Graded Meet, originally 19th - 20th January, has been changed by the organisers.

It will now be held at Grangemouth Sports Complex on 20th January (only) and will have a reduced programme of events.

To save any confusion, forms will be re issued ASAP and the entry deadline will now be 28th December.

Anyone who has already paid in cash for this meet should see me at Tollcross tonight for a refund.

I will destroy any cheques which I have received unless instructed otherwise.

My apologies for the inconvenience but it is outwith COGST's control.

Thanks for your understanding
