Proud day for swim duo

TWO LOCAL primary seven schoolboys, Blair Geddes and Matthew Michie, proudly represented Colliston Primary School and Burnside Primary School, Carnoustie, respectively, at the national finals of the Scottish Schools’ Championships at Tollcross, Glasgow, last Saturday.

The duo earned their places at the finals with good performances at the Tayside Schools’ heats back in November last year.

Blair participated in the 50 metres backstroke and Matthew swam in the 50 metres breaststroke. Both boys’ performances gained them long course personal best times in their events.

Blair and Matthew are members of St Thomas ASC and were accompanied and encouraged by their coach, Marion Durham.

Our picture shows the boys proudly sporting the sweatshirts their parents purchased for them as a memento of the occasion. They also purchased T-shirts listing the name of every swimmer who participated in the event.
