SWIMMERS from Haddington & District ASC (Amateur Swimming Club) gathered earlier this month for their annual prizegiving.

The evening, held at the town’s rugby club at Neilson Park, celebrated members’ achievements over the last 12 months. 

Edward Alsop claimed the award as top male swimmer, while Lauren Clark won the girls’ award.

It was a good night for Alsop, who also lifted the trophy in the boys’ 15-and-over age group category – Christen Russell won the corresponding girls’ award.

The Novice Endeavour prizes went to Glen Cameron and Libby Ballantyne, while Millie Capaldi won the David Allan Award and Alsop was presented the David Hutchinson Award.

The eight-and-under winners were Lewis Lothian and Isla Whetton, while the nine-year-old winners were Harris Munro and Georgia Lyall. 

In the 10-year-old category, Ben Williamson and Tegan Black were victorious, while Hannah Ormiston was the girls’ winner in the 11-year-old category.

There were joint winners of the girls’ prize in the 12-year-old section – Eve Craigmile and Louisa Stoddart – while Owen Williamson lifted the boys’ title. 

In the 13-year-old section, Aidan Ballantyne was the boys’ winner, with Lucia Bivar Segurado taking home the girls’ award.

And Sean Craigmile won the best male 14-year-old swimmer, with Lucy Lucas the top girl at that age.

Senga Dent, head coach, told Courier Sport: “We have had so many great swims over the past year and some of the championship age groups were contested down to the last heat. 

“Our thanks to our swimmers and coaches for the hard work and the committee for their help and organisation.”
