Triumphs at Thurso Mini Meet
The Club’s Mini Meet is always a keenly anticipated event on the calendar and this year was not going to disappoint. This is an open meet and Thurso are very grateful for the support of the visiting clubs from Wick, Orkney, Forres, Inverness and Tain which all adds to the sense of occasion and excitement. As well as having loads of fun there was, as always, some very competitive action and medal individual winning performances were well spread around the home club. Silver medals were won by Keira Bain, Scott Sutherland, Rachel May and Emma Cormack. Bronze medals won by Olivia MacKay, Tom Armitage, Emma Cormack, Sam MacKay, Scott Sutherland and Megan MacKay. 4th places went to Megan MacKay, Holly Gillibrand, Sean Johnston, Keira Bain, Megan MacKay, Rachel May and Olivia MacKay. The meet also has team relay events which are a highlight and gets the noise levels reverberating around the swimming pool. This year’s relay events lived up to expectations on that score with Thurso picking up a bronze in the 11-12 years medley, a silver in the 10 and under medley and pride of place went to Olivia, Scott, Keira and Tom in the under 10 free who turned in a gold medal winning performance.
