Swimmers in BEST form

Once again, the Borders Elite Swimming Team (BEST) members have been punching above their weight at national level.

Competing in the Scottish Age Group Swimming Championships at the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh last week, BEST were placed 10th from more than 60 teams, with a comparatively small group of swimmers.

In total, the squad, coached by Alex Jordan, picked up eight gold, seven silver and two bronze medals. Go to www.thesouthernreporter for more on this story.
