They did it again. Mary Erskine School's Abby Orr, Katy Smith, Hannah Ewing and Niamh Ritchie completed a remarkable double for the fourth year in a row at the Brodies Schools Relay Championships held at the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh.

The quartet are now in fourth year - so they have still have another two years to swim in the Championships and thereby complete a remarkably impressive first to sixth year clean sweep.

"Next year will be tough because we will be in the Open category with talented swimmers from all age-groups, said Katy, who trains with the other three girls at the Warrender Club.

This year, Mary Erskine finished second to St George's School in both events in the Open category.

Woodmill High School will be attempting to copy Mary Erskine's. Morven Lister, Emma Russell, Rebecca Braid and Ellie Turner won both the Senior one relays - they all train with the Carnegie Club in Dunfermline.

A similar double was done by George Watson's boys in Senior one. Alasdair Petersen, Josh Aspinall, Daniel Saunders and Finlay Scott are another Warrender quartet to climb to the top of the podium.

Strathallan boys won both the relays in the Open section. Dylan Sommerville, Allan Chu, Scott McLay and Ryan Curtis claimed the medley gold. With Ryan sitting an exam in the morning, Jonathan Wong proved to be a perfect replacement in the 4 x 50m freestyle.

The Championship attracted schools from all over Scotland, and it was great to welcome pupils from as far away as the Nicolson Institute in Stornoway in the north and Stranraer Academy in the south.

The top overall award reflects consistency and strength in depth and it was Banchory Academy that returned home with the coveted Cup.

Now everyone is looking forward to the individual championships next January. Thanks to Brodies, Scottish schools swimming continues to go from strength to strength.
