Firrhill High School's Keanna MacInnes and Lexi Waller continued to shine at Brodies Scottish Schools Championships on a day when ten records were broken at Dollan Aquatics Centre in East Kilbride.

Two years ago in Aberdeen, Keanna and Lexi both smashed records in the 13-14 years category - now their names are in the books at 15-16 years.

Kenna claimed a record double in the 100m and 200m butterfly, while Lexi won both backstroke titles, her new mark of 2:17.58 in the 200m backstroke deservedly securing the Top Award in her age group.

Joining the Edinburgh pair in the record books were Angus Allison (Broughton High School), Mark Ford (St Aloysius College),Archie Goodburn (Stewart's Melville College), George Clough (James Gillespie's High School) 2:22.90, Iona MacLeod (Harris Academy), Katie Shanahan (Bishopbriggs Academy) and Nikki Miller (Mearns Castle High School).

Angus completed a double, a record in the 13-14 years 200m individual medley being set beside a win in the 200m breaststroke.

And it was a family double for the Allisons - big brother Fraser won the Open 400m individual medley.

Iona was another double winner in the 13-14 years freestyle. The Dundee girl set the new best time in the 200m and followed up with victory in the 100m to collect her top age-group award.

"It's great to do so well,:" said the second year pupil. "School is very supportive and I want to take my swimming as far as possible."

Kenna and Lexi, who both are part of an athlete support programme at Firrhill High, have been in terrific form over the past few weeks.

Having excelled at the Scottish Age Group Championships in Edinburgh in December, they both went on to compete for Scotland at the Ontario Junior International in Canada and then the Geneva International Meet. They both struck gold in Switzerland.

Both girls are in their fourth year at school, preparing for their National 5s.

"When we are away we get lots of work to do," explained Keanna. "School is very helpful. We get to study instead of taking PE.

"I didn't expect to go so fast here in East Kilbride. But I always enjoy Brodies Championships. It's a great atmosphere."

Scott McLay (Strathallan School) is one of the rising stars of Scottish swimming and he won both 17-19 years freestyle events. The Perth swimmer was rewarded with the top award in his section.

His 200m race was one of the closest of the day. He was pursued to the touch by Aberdeen Grammar's Jack Watson. "It was definitely a tough final 50m," said the sixth year pupil who won by 0.24secs in 1:56.89. "But it's great to win titles in my final year at Strthallan."

Nikki Miller (Mearns Castle High School) trains with the East Kilbride Club - and she delighted the home crowd with a double in the 17-19 years. She won the 200m butterfly and the Open 400m freestyle.

Swimmers from all over Scotland took part in the Championships, and the winners also represented north to south.

Emma Hill travelled all the way from Castletown Primary in Caithness in the far north to win the 12 and under 50m butterfly, while Dumfries High School's Bryce Procter came from the south to claim the 13-14 years 100m butterfly.
