Bellshill bling bonanza

20 IASC swimmers took to the pool at the Bellshill Sharks Open and achieved an incredible set of results. Completing almost 100 individual swims they secured 40 top six finishes and an incredible 19 medals – 9 gold, 5 silver and 5 bronze.

Seven of those medals came from 9-year old Archie McArthur, who medalled in each of his events. Archie swam his way to five golds and two silver medals and recorded new PBs in all but one event. Competing against boys up to two years older, Archie won gold for the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly, 100m backstroke and 200m freestyle. His silver medals came in the 100m breaststroke and 100m freestyle.

His 200m butterfly triumph was one of the most exciting races of the competition. Having led for most of the race, a strong surge from his 11-year old rival threatened his win in the final few metres, but Archie dug deep to secure his impressive win by a fraction of a second.

Fellow 9-year old Cameron Beck secured two medals and 8 PBs. Swimming in nine events, Cameron made all four finals for the 50m events in the 8-10 year old categories and won gold for the 50m backstroke and silver in the 100m butterfly. His PBs ensured he placed highly in his other events, with four more top six finishes.

Oliver Patton made it three medals and three PBs from three events when he secured gold for the 100m freestyle and two bronzes for the 50m and 200m backstroke in the 11-12 years age group. Competing in the same age category, 11-year old Luke Garrity brought home a gold for the 400m IM and a bronze for the 100m breaststroke. Luke also recorded 3 new PBs in his other events.

The final gold medal of the day came from Mirren McConnell in the 8-10 age group 100m butterfly. Despite being ill all week, Mirren still managed to record a PB to take the victory. She also gave strong performances to secure a further two top six places.

Aaron Gray had a successful competition picking up an impressive silver in the 200m butterfly and a bronze in the 50m butterfly and recording PBs in every event. Aaron also recorded another two top 6 finishes in his 15 and overs category.

With three new PBs, Ryan Cummings secured a silver in the 50m breast and a 4th and 5th place in the 100m backstroke and 200m freestyle events in the 8-10 age group. The final medallist of the day was Adam Brooks. Swimming in the 13-14 category, Adam won a bronze for his 100m backstroke and secured new PBs in three of his other events.

Outside of the medals, everyone else achieved impressive personal results with high place finishes and new PBs. 9-year old Scott Brodie continued to improve with five new PBs and six top ten finishes, including the finals of the 8-10 category 50m backstroke and breaststroke.

Ashleigh Blyth, Eve Morrison and Ben Skinner secured 4th places in the 200m IM, 100m breaststroke and the 50m backstroke respectively. Cammy Kerr also got a 5th place and a new PB in the 400m freestyle.

Four swimmers achieved 100% PBs across a number of events. Holly Beck made it seven out of seven and secured impressive top ten placings for her 200m IM and freestyle events. Darren Macleay made it four out of four and a top ten place for his 50m breaststroke. Both Alice McClafferty and Nathan Peoples recorded two PBs each, with Alice getting top 10 finishes for her 50m breaststroke and 50m freestyle and Nathan for his 100m butterfly.

Sam Sharkey, Katherine Simpson and Anna McClafferty also improved on their times in a number of different events. Sam recorded top ten finishes in the 200m freestyle and 50m breaststroke, where he also swam a PB. Anna achieved new PBs in her 100m backstroke and 100m and 200m freestyle events, while Katherine improved her times in the 50m breaststroke and 100m freestyle.

The coaching team for the competition were delighted with all of the performances – but singled out the high number of PBs, the two 200m butterfly medals and having three swimmers in the 8-10 boys 50m breaststroke final (Ryan, Cameron and Scott) as their top highlights. Having medallists and finalists from across a wide range of age groups and events shows how the club is growing and improving in strength and depth.

Swimming stars shine at West District Championships

17 swimmers headed back to Tollcross for Round 2 of the West District Long Course Age Group Championships for Inverclyde Amateur Swimming Club. With 56 individual swims, the club achieved an incredible 25 top 10 finishes, 2 bronze, 2 silver and 2 golds as well as lots and lots of new PBs!

After a successful outing in Round 1, focus switched from 100m and 400m races to the 50m and 200m versions. It was also the time for the distance events, with the 1500m freestyle being contested.

Matthew Garrity led the honours for IASC, coming away with two superb gold medals in the 50m and 200m breaststroke events. His 50m time of 31.84 seconds brings him within 0.1 second of a new West District record for this distance – a hugely positive sign so early in the long course season. To round off his successful weekend, Matthew also came 5th in the 200m freestyle.

Not to be outdone by his older brother, Luke Garrity put in another great performance to pick up a silver medal in the 200m breaststroke and a bronze in the 50m breaststroke. Luke also swam in the 200m freestyle, finishing an impressive 7th place in his age category.

Leading the way for the girls once again was Aimee Watson. Aimee opted not to swim in her preferred breaststroke events, and still managed to win a silver medal in the 50m butterfly and a bronze medal in the 200m IM. An 8th place in the 200m backstroke and 14th place in the 50m freestyle added to the impressive results for the highly talented swimmer.

Outside of the medalists, there was a lot of other success, with a further 16 top ten finishes being achieved by a further 10 swimmers. April Craynor impressed by coming 5th in the 50m backstroke and 8th in the 200m event, setting fast new PBs in both. April also recorded another impressive PB in the 50m butterfly, where she finished 15th. And despite being well outside his PB, Kian McNelis managed to hold on for 5th place in the 1500m freestyle.

Molly Cannon set new PBs to finish 6th in the 200m IM and 7th in the 50m breaststroke. Molly finished just outside her best times for the 50m butterfly, 200m freestyle and 50m freestyle, but still recorded respectable 11th, 15th and 16th place finishes. Young Betty Fischer Keogh also achieved two top ten places and two new PBs – coming 6th in the 50m freestyle and 9th in the 50m butterfly.

Thomas Cannon was pleased to finish 8th in the 200m breaststroke, despite being just outside his best time. He swam a PB to reach 15th in the 50m breaststroke and was 18th in the 50m backstroke. Alistair Currie did well to come 8th in the 200m freestyle and 9th in the 50m event, with a fast new PB. Oliver Patton also swam an impressive PB to claim 8th place in the 200m backstroke. He also PB’ed in the 50m freestyle, where he finished 13th.

Adam Brooks finished in 9th place in the 50m backstroke with a new PB and despite not swimming his fastest time, managed 10th place in the 200m event. Peter Maloney finished 9th in the 50m butterfly and 11th in the 50m backstroke, setting two new PBs. He also managed a 12th place finish in the 200m backstroke.

Completing the list of finalists was Jay Keith, with two 10th places and two PBs for the 50m butterfly and the 200m IM. Jay also scored three further PBs to finish in the top 20 in the 50m breaststroke, freestyle and backstroke events.

Despite finishing outside of the top 10, other swimmers were pleased with their performances at this high level of competition. Lucy Campbell achieved five top 20 finishes and three new PBs and Michal Zawadzki made three top 20 finishes and two PBs. Ashleigh Blyth made the top 20 twice and was just outside it on her third swim and Emily Lightfoot was unlucky not to PB in her races.

The coaches commented: “It was one of the most successful weekends of competition at West District level for the club. Besides their great results, our swimmers were delighted to be given the opportunity meet international stars Craig McLean, Ross Murdoch, Aimee Willmott and Duncan Scott. The chance to learn from the best and get tips and advice from them was an amazing experience. We are very grateful to the West District Team for organising it.”

Outstanding medal haul at Grangemouth JAGS and MAGS

Young IASC swimmers in action at Grangemouth JAGS and MAGS produced an outstanding medal haul over the two days of competition.

JAGS is a graded meet, meaning swimmers must be slower than the entry time to compete. Graded competitions are designed to offer less experienced swimmers the opportunity to race and are the entry point to competitive swimming for many young athletes. MAGS is not graded, meaning the competition steps up a level, with swimmer up to 15 years old competing.

At the JAGS meet, IASC’s 16 swimmers won multiple medals, one ‘Too Fast’ award and a Best Boy and Best Girl award for the most impressive swimmers of the day. In recognition of the their success, IASC was awarded runner up for ‘Best Club’ against much bigger teams.

In the JAGS morning session it was the turn of the 10’s and under to compete, with many swimmers making their competitive debut. 7 year olds Mirrin Fay and Katie Deegan (who was celebrating her 7th birthday) more than held their own against the older competitors. Douglas Campbell impressed, coming 4th in the 50m backstroke and 6th in the 50m butterfly. Samuel McClumpha and Abi McAnerney also did well, and Abi was particularly unlucky not to medal in the 50m backstroke, when an accident against the wall robbed her of her commanding lead.

Highlights from the morning’s racing included a brilliant gold for Sophie Campbell in the 50m butterfly, 4th place for Oliver Jones in the 50m butterfly and a bronze and a 6th place for Isabella McClafferty in the 50m butterfly and 50m freestyle respectively. The boys relay team (Scott, Oliver, Douglas and Samuel) came 4th and the girls team (Isabella, Abi, Sophie and Eilidh) went one better and won a bronze medal.

Stars of the morning were undoubtedly Scott Brodie and Eilidh Melrose. Scott won gold in the 50m butterfly and silver in both the 50m backstroke and 50m breaststroke. He then went on to win a ‘Too Fast’ award for the 50m freestyle. With those results, it was no surprise when Scott won the Best Boy award. Eilidh also put in a superb performance to win silver in the 50m breaststroke and 4th in both the 50m butterfly and 50m freestyle. And just like Scott, Eilidh was awarded the Best Girl award.

In the JAGS afternoon session it was the turn of the 11 and 12 year olds. The gauntlet was thrown down, but the older swimmers lived up to the challenge, with 100% PBs. More medals followed with Lewis Anderson winning gold in the 12 years 50m backstroke and 50m freestyle and silver in the 50m breaststroke. Kerr Melrose won gold in the 11 years 50m butterfly and came 4th in the 40m breaststroke.

For the girls, Katherine Simpson won two silver medals in the 12 years 50m breaststroke and the 50m freestyle. 11 year old Charlotte Jones bagged a silver in the 50m butterfly and a bronze in the 50m breaststroke. There were also a couple of 4th place finishes for the 11 year old girls, with Anna McClafferty in the 50m backstroke and Olivia McNally in the 50m breaststroke. The girls relay team rounded the day off with another great 4th place.

On the Sunday, it was the turn of the MAGS competition. 6 IASC swimmers were in action this time. Kiera McCrorey, Lewis Anderson and Connor McCrorey all performed well to achieve new PB times against some seriously strong opposition. Lucy Campbell, Mirren McConnell and Oliver Patton all recorded new PBs, and were delighted to come away with a hard won 6th place each – Lucy and Mirren in the 100m butterfly and Oliver in the 100m backstroke.

Coach Shirley Reford was pleased with the performance of all of the swimmers over the 2 days of competition. She commented: “There were stunning performances throughout the weekend with some great debuts from our younger swimmers. The team spirit was electric – there was such great camaraderie poolside with everyone supporting each other. It makes such a difference to the swimmers’ confidence. I was so proud of them all.”

Swimmer of the month – January 2019

Congratulations to our swimmer of the month for January – Peter Maloney.

Peter wins this award after impressing the coaches with his great work ethic in training. Peter keeps working hard to improve his technical skills and is consistently getting faster. This has translated in to some terrific results in recent galas.

Well done Peter – what a confidence boost ahead of your next competition!

IASC are top of the class at Scottish Schools

15 IASC swimmers represented 6 Inverclyde schools at the Brodies Scottish Schools Swimming Championships and it proved to be another winning occasion with three golds, 1 silver, 1 bronze and a host of top flight finishes and new PBs.

Swimmers from all over Scotland compete in the prestigious gala at Tollcross. Races are streamed by age group, with swimmers competing in either 12 and under, 13-14 years, 15-16 years or 17-19 years events.

The morning session got off to a flying start, with Aimee Watson and Molly Cannon going in the 15-16 years 200m breaststroke. Clydeview’s Aimee was one of the pre-event favourites, and it turned into an exciting battle for gold. It was neck and neck throughout the race, with Aimee just stretching ahead in the last few metres to claim an outstanding win. St Columba’s Molly exceeded pre-race expectations to finish in a strong 11th place.

Aimee and Molly were back in action in the afternoon in the 100m breaststroke. Again, it was close battle at the front, with Aimee swimming another incredible race to claim silver. Molly finished strongly in 14th just a fraction of a second off 10th place.

The great results continued in the morning session with Sam Sharkey and Lauren Macleay – both of Clydeview – coming a very impressive 6th in their events: the 200m IM for Sam and the 100m backstroke for Lauren. Notre Dame swimmers Jay Keith and Nathan Peoples both swam in the 13-14 years 100m butterfly. Swimming in his first national competition, Nathan came a very respectable 18th, and Jay capitalised on his recent great form to finish in a great 9th place. St Columba’s Kilmacolm’s Ashleigh Blyth waited most of the morning for her race, and finished well in 18th place in the 15-16 years 100m butterfly.

Three primary school pupils were competing in the 12 and under events. In the morning session, Moorfoot Primary was represented by Luke Garrity, who was swimming in the 50m breaststroke. Luke put in an excellent performance to finish 11th and was unlucky not to make the final. Also swimming the 50m breaststroke, Betty Fischer-Keogh from St Ninian’s qualified for her final where she finished in a superb 7th place.

Starting off the afternoon session, 9 year old Archie McArthur was the youngest competitor of the entire event, swimming in the 50m butterfly. The St Columba’s Kilmacolm pupil showed what exciting potential he has, finishing in 10th place against swimmers two years older than him.

Next to race was Clydeview swimmer Kian McNelis, who put in a great performance to finish 12th in the 200m freestyle. Kian then went on to do the double, bagging another 12th place in the 100m event in the evening.

Clydeview’s Matthew Garrity was competing in the 15-16 years 200m breaststroke in the afternoon and the 100m event in the evening. Just like Aimee, Matthew was a pre-race favourite for both his races. In the 200m race, he executed a perfect final turn to move ahead of the competition and comfortably win gold. It was a closer battle in the 100m event, but Matthew kept his cool and stayed in control to win his second gold.

In the 17-19 200m breaststroke, Thomas Cannon of St Columba’s swam a fantastic final 50m to claim bronze, just missing out on the silver by a fraction of a second. Buoyed up by his success, Thomas then went on to claim 5th in the 100m breaststroke in the last swim of the competition.

Two other St Columba’s swimmers had to wait until the evening session for their chance to race, but they made it worth their while. Swimming in the 15-16 years 200m butterfly, Aaron Gray put in a fine performance to claim 6th place. Shortly after, Emily Lightfoot swam in the 17-19 year 200m IM, earning a great 8th place.

It was a long and tiring day, but the swimmers were all delighted with their performances and results. Team spirit and confidence levels are high and the future is looking exciting for swimming in Inverclyde!

IASC Presentation Night – Celebrating Success

It was time again for the swimmers, parents, coaches and invited guests of IASC to dry off and dress up for the annual presentation night. It is the highlight of the club’s social calendar, and an opportunity to recognise the swimmers’ achievements in the past year.

The evening began with a look back on the year as a whole, presented by club President Jennifer Garrity. It was a chance to relive some of the swimming highlights such as SNAGS, the Clyde Coast Mini League final and the British championships. It was also a great chance to reflect on some of the other annual activities the swimmers get involved in such as PGL, Lanzarote and the pantomime visit.

Invited guest Provost Martin Brennan then kept the audience laughing with his entertaining and touching speech paying tribute to the many volunteers who keep the club going.

Before long, it was time to hand out the awards for the night. All swimmers were presented with a certificate of achievement, and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place age group winners from the club championships were presented with their trophies.

The coaches had four additional awards to present on the night. The first of these was for Best Newcomer, which is open to all swimmers who have joined the club in the last year. This award went to Keira McKee, who has risen quickly through the squads in her short time with the club. The Land award – which recognises the best athlete in land-based strength and endurance training – followed and was presented to Shaun Wiseman.

The next coaches award was for Junior Swimmer of the Year, which went to Alice McClafferty, for her commitment and determination to improve. The Senior Swimmer of the Year award was fiercely contested, with Matthew Garrity winning on the night for his year of outstanding wins and West District records.

But it wasn’t just the coaches who got to choose award winners: the swimmers themselves are given the opportunity to vote for their own junior and senior swimmers of the year. Swimmers often have a completely different perspective to the coaches and know their fellow swimmers better than anyone else.

The Swimmers’ Junior Swimmer of the Year was awarded to Cameron Beck for his great improvement throughout the year. The Senior Swimmer of the Year was a more closely fought battle, with Aimee Watson and Matthew Garrity both deservedly sharing the award.

There were three other awards presented on the night. The Volunteer of the Year award was shared between Claire McArthur and Julie Cassidy, both of whom work tirelessly on behalf of the club in many different ways. Coach of the Year – also voted for by the swimmers – was awarded to Kyara Finlay for the third year running!

To recognise the 40th anniversary of the club, a new award was created: The Outstanding Contribution to IASC award. The inaugural recipient of this was Head Coach Shirley Reford. Since joining the club, Shirley has completely transformed the coaching set up, putting a professional coaching team and squad structure in place. Under Shirley’s guidance, the club has gone from strength to strength, producing regular finalists and champions at national level. Shirley was a hugely deserving and popular winner, receiving a standing ovation from the appreciative audience.

After all the awards, it was time to get the party started as kids and adults alike danced the night away to the top tunes from DJ Bruce Glenny. It was the perfect way to spend a cold January evening and the perfect way to celebrate what the club has achieved.

IASC would like to extend their sincere thanks to all those who donated prizes for our raffle, including Amazon, BeardyBeardy, Cairn Kilmacolm, Colin Cox PT, Infinity Beauty, Gourock Golf Club and the many, many generous swim club parents. Thank you for supporting our club and helping to make the night such a success!

Racing starts again at West District championships

It was time to start racing again as swimmers from Inverclyde Amateur Swimming Club headed to Tollcross to kick off 2019 with Round 1 of the West District Long Course Age Group Championships.

13 swimmers represented the club in a total of 32 races. Training for the youngsters carried on over the festive period to ensure everyone arrived fresh and ready to race. All swimmers had to achieve tough qualifying times to be able to compete at the two-day event, and for some, it was their first time racing in a long course (50m pool) competition. There were impressive performances all round, with multiple new personal bests, several finalists and even a couple of medals.

Competing in the 100m backstroke, freestyle and butterfly, Aimee Watson improved her times in each event and came a very impressive 5th, 4th and 3rd place respectively. As a Scottish Champion in breaststroke, it was exciting for the club to see Aimee being so consistently competitive in her other strokes.

Competing in four events, Jay Keith produced solid swims for the 100m backstroke and 100m freestyle, achieving a good PB for the freestyle. But it was the butterfly events where Jay showed his talent. He came 5th in the 100m race with a new PB, and finished a fantastic 3rd place in the 200m event with a massive 10 second PB.

One of the youngest swimmers representing the club, Luke Garrity had a great meet with two 4th place finishes in the 400m freestyle and the 100m breaststroke. A six second PB in the freestyle event topped off his successful performance.

Impressing the coaches on their long course debuts were April Craynor and Peter Maloney. April was competing in the 100m across all four strokes, achieving PBs in three of them and making the final of the 100m backstroke, where she finished 9th. Peter had a similarly impressive debut. Competing in the 100m backstroke and freestyle and the 100m and 200m butterfly, Peter also claimed three new PBs, and made the finals for the backstroke and butterfly races. He came 8th in the backstroke event, 6th place in the 100m butterfly and claimed 4th in the 200m butterfly, with a huge 8 second PB.

Other finalists for the weekend included Adam Brooks, Alistair Currie and Betty Fischer-Keogh. Adam made the final of the 400m freestyle where he finished 10th and recorded solid performances and a new PB in the 100m backstroke and butterfly. Alistair and Betty both made the finals of their 100m freestyle races, coming 7th and 5th with a new PB each. Betty also competed in the 100m breaststroke. Lucy Campbell and Ashleigh Blyth were unlucky to just miss out on the finals for the 100m butterfly, where they both finished 12th in their age groups.

Outside of the finals, there were strong performances and new PBs from several swimmers. In the 100m freestyle Ashleigh Blyth, Anna McClafferty, Oliver Patton and Ben Skinner all improved their times. Oliver also improved his 100m breastroke time, along with Wladek Zawadzki. Ben was unlucky to just miss out on a new PB for this event.

The next round of the West District championships takes place in early February and switches from 100m events to the 50m and 200m races. Coaches for the event Andrew Dyer and Kyara Finlay were pleased with the performance of the club. Andrew commented:

“Competition was fierce for this event. We had a lot of other swimmers who achieved the times needed but didn’t get a place in the races as the fastest swimmers are selected first. So to see such a strong team performance – especially from those who’ve never competed in long course – was extremely encouraging. We now need to maintain focus and continue preparations for round 2.”

Swimmers keep their cool at IASC club championships

On a cold and wet December afternoon, swimming families from across Inverclyde braved warnings of black ice to descend en-masse on the Waterfront Leisure complex. There wasn’t a spare seat poolside as friends and family gathered to cheer on the swimmers in the 40th IASC championships.

Many involved with the club feared the event wasn’t going to happen because of the broken pool floor at the Waterfront. Huge efforts went on behind the scenes to save the championships, with the club working with Inverclyde Leisure and Glasgow Life on a range of contingency plans. In the end, the Waterfront was secured and the club were able to host a shortened programme of racing.

Club championships is a competition like no other, and one of the few times the whole club comes together to compete. The atmosphere and support poolside is incredible, and the competition is friendly but fierce.

The club championships crowns 1st, 2nd and 3rd boys and girls across eight different age groups. The competition itself is made up of 2 separate events – one in summer and one in winter. Age group placings after the summer event were well known, with some swimmers holding commanding leads. In many cases, however, the winter event would decide the placings.

The freezing temperatures outside – and inside – played a big part in how the afternoon went. For the first time in the club’s history, officials and timekeepers wore hats and jumpers over their uniform in a bid to keep warm. Never have Santa hats been in such high demand poolside!

The cold conditions also added an extra challenge for the swimmers trying to stay warm in between races. Hot showers and damp towels were in constant use throughout the afternoon. Despite this, the atmosphere was as warm and supportive as ever from spectators and swimmers alike.

The schedule was packed, with racing lasting for over four hours. For many of our young swimmers, this was their first taste of competition, and Head Coach Shirley Reford was very impressed:

“Sometimes the occasion can overwhelm new swimmers who aren’t used to the noise and pressure. It’s a very different environment to training. There’s a lot of waiting about, but you have to be ready to go as soon as your name is called. Keeping warm, hydrated and nourished is key to your performance at competitions. For many, this was the first time they’ve had to think about that. It’s also the first time many of them have ever swum in front of a crowd – that’s daunting enough for anyone, even without the pressure of competition. Our debut swimmers coped brilliantly.”

The cold conditions definitely affected the swimmers. While the water temperature was great for racing, many swimmers struggled to warm up their muscles quickly enough to set new PBs. As the afternoon went on, less and less PBs were recorded, but it certainly didn’t affect the excitement of the racing.

The highlight was the breaststroke head to head between Thomas Cannon and Matthew Garrity. The 200m event came first. Side by side along all eight lengths, Thomas snatched the victory in the last few metres. The rematch in the 100m event was just as exciting, but this time, Matthew edged the victory to screams and roars from the spectators.

Championship positions changed all afternoon and after a long day of racing, it was over to the club’s officials to add up all the scores. Some of the placings were incredibly tight, with just a single point separating swimmers in a number of categories. Swimmers will receive their awards at the club’s presentation night in January. Let’s hope it’s a little warmer there than it was at the competition!
