In the younger age group Euan 12 year old Euan McLeod had a superb swim to take silver in the 200m butterfly. Niamh Jeffrey was 5th in the 200m breaststroke.

The 14 years and over section bought more success. In the 200m butterfly Mark Ford was 2nd and teammate Mitchell Stevenson was third. Mark was third in the 100m butterfly and Mitchell 6th. Another bronze came for Mark in the 50m backstroke. A few days later he broke the West District age group record for 50m backstroke at the Edinburgh International Meet.
