Under 13 Boys on way to Qualification too
Following the heats of the National relays where we had 12 teams entered all qualified for next week’s semi’s and final to be held in the Emirates stadium next Saturday as part of the British Athletics Indoor Grand Prix. This included all B teams and a C team in the U13’s competition, which is great testament to all the coaches and athletes who competed.
We also managed to get two Senior teams out, one in the Senior Women event & one in the Senior Men’s competition. The women(Iona Menzies, Niamh Grahame, Sarah Eunson & Paula Houston)ran very well and finished 3rd in a club record time of 1:45.96. The Senior Men (Jason Wu, David Campbell, Elliot Heath & Christopher Stewart)finished just outside the medals in 4th but were rewarded with a new club record of 1:32.35.
However the pick of the records was the U13 girls (Alyson Bell, Niamh Smith, Mary Rose Cairns & Lara Sturgeon in a new club and Scottish record time of 1:53.66 which we believe also surpassed the previous UK Indoor Age Group Best Performances of 4x200m Relay .They will now be chasing the UK record of 1.52.5 outdoors.
Well done to all our Relay teams , all our Coaches and Parents too!!
We are awaiting more news from the USA , Sheffield and the AAA English Championships and will do the catch up tomorrow.
