Teviotdale ASC swimmer Scott Wilcox added to the gold medal he won a fortnight ago, by claiming silver and bronze at the finals of the East District Age Group Championships.

The 17-year-old took the silver in the 100m freestyle in a fantastic time of 53:64 seconds.

And the following day he put in an equally impressive swim in the 100m breaststroke with a time of 1:04:32 to secure the bronze medal.

His 15-year-old sister Jessica competed in one of the closest contested finals of the weekend, the 100m freestyle.

The teenager swam under the minute and lifted the bronze medal. Over the weekend Jessica also produced two significant personal best times in the 100m breaststroke and 100m butterfly.

Also reaching finals was 15-year-old Kristie Waugh, who produced two strong swims in the 100m freestyle and 100 breaststroke where she was placed 9th. Kristie rounded off her weekend by taking part in a workshop led by the famous Olympic gold medalist Duncan Goodhew.
