Report from Colin Saxby
Giffnock North was again represented as the National Combined Events Championships continued on Sunday at the Emirates.
In the Under 15 Girls Pentathlon, Lauren Saxby (8th) and Megan Busby (10th) both achieved top 10 placings out of a large field of 21 athletes. Both girls achieved PBs in two of their five individual events (Megan increasing her shot put PB by 70cm), with Lauren also adding 140 points to her previous best pentathlon score.
The final 3 events of the U17 men’s heptathlon also took place on Sunday with Alessandro Schenini achieving an excellent 4th place overall (to give some context, the winning Whitemoss athlete’s score was 4th on the Scottish all-time list). Alessandro also set a number of PBs along the way,
Well done to all the athletes who represented the club over the weekend.
