Dumfries Amateur Swimming Club hosted its annual advent open meet in Bellshill.

The team includes Davie Houston from Upper Nithsdale, Stephen Dale-Sunley from Kirkcudbright and Spencer Bullivant, Lewis McLeod, Kalle Hoad, Cameron Allison, Rachael Beswick and Lauren Anderson from Stranraer.

The club also got a lot of positive feedback about how well the meet was ran and how welcoming the club was as a host, providing good Christmas hats and spot prizes to the swimmers to get into the festive spirit.

Sharon Eccleston said: “There were 34 swimmers in total attending the meet from DASC and thdy achieved a total 34 medals, 13 Gold, 10 Silver and 11 Bronze which is a huge effort, especially as the junior and national squads had to pick swims that they don’t do normally. But they showed great team spirit.”
