Kilmaron Win AH Brodie Trophy

Kilmaron swimmers produced an upset result at the 2017 Brodie Gala at Cupar Pool when they finished strongly to lift the AH Brodie Cup for the thirteenth time and denied the pupils from John Fergus School the chance of making it three wins in a row.

The Brodie Gala is organised by Disability Sport Fife and supported by the Fife Sports and Leisure Trust and involves swimmers with severe and complex needs.For the past two years Rimbleton Primary School pupils with additional support needs have also taken part.

At the end of two hours of competition Kilmaron pupils were crowned Inter School Champions with 32 points, 10 ahead of John Fergus, with Calaiswood and Hyndhead sharing third place.

John Fergus School produced the two outstanding swimmers of the day in Cameron Hay and Danielle Young who won 50m back and front plus the boys and girls Trophy Races. Luuk Vellenturf was the outstanding Primary pupil with 50m wins on back and front.

Kilmaron sealed their win when they came first in the Inter Schools relay and Rimbleton Tigers defeated Rimbleton Panthers to win the Primary relay.

Race winners were:

John Fergus :Cameron Hay, Danielle Young, Zahra Ahmed, Lauren Fraczek,

Kilmaron: Madeleine Dias, Brandon Thom, Hayley Carmichael, Aiden Hutchison, Cameron Brunton, Bobby Lockkart, Kyle Hughes

It is traditional for the schools to have a picnic on the grass outside the Cupar Pool and fortunately this year was no exception.
