Helensburgh Amateur Swimming club swimmers competed in the West District long course age group championships at East Kilbride last weekend, pulling off some impressive results.

Caitriona Stewart returned an outstanding performance bringing back three golds, one silver and one bronze medal.

Roisin Kavanagh also performed strongly securing a bronze medal.

Both girls were swimming in the 11-13 age group with Rosin in the age 12 category and Caitriona in age 13.

Caitriona swam consistently well over the two days securing medals in all of her events.

She secured gold in the 50m freestyle, 50m and 100m breaststroke, silver in the 100m freestyle and bronze in the 50m butterfly.

She also secured personal best times in all of her events with particularly impressive improvements in the 50m breast stroke, 2.39 seconds and the 100m freestyle by 3.92 seconds.

Roisin, swimming in age group 12 was disadvantaged by the group category of 11-13 which meant she was swimming against others at least a year older than her.

In all but one of her events she was the fastest in the age 12 category.

She swam strongly over both days securing a bronze medal in the 50m backstroke.

Roisin narrowly missed out on a second bronze having to settle for fourth place in the 100m backstroke in which she also secured a personal best.

She was fifth in the 200m backstroke, seventh in the 200m Individual Medley.

Roisin also clocked a new impressive personal best in the 200m freestyle.

In the other events Kavanagh finished 10th in both the 50m and 100m freestyle and 12th in the 50m butterfly.
