Lanark ASC's Millie McArthur was part of the Scotland West team which traveled to Sheffield for the GB Inter-Counties Meet.

On the Saturday (5 October), the team took part in the Lincoln Meet. The 13 year old had a super swim at the Lincoln Meet to take silver in the 100m backstroke. The following day Millie took part in the relay events for Scotland West. The team finished a very creditable 4th.

Coach Karen Kelly commented "Millie had been unwell the week up to Sheffield and she exceeded all expectations with her performances - especially in the backstroke where she took nearly 3 seconds off her personal best time."
