Reuben MacDonald  Centre with Silver Medal for Tinto

Giffnock athletes enjoyed a good day at the Scottish Primary Schools XC Championships  in Kirkcaldy last Saturday 22nd April when turning out for their schools at this event , traditionally the  late and the last XC of the Season. This event is so large that it  requires 2 races in each age group and gender with Schools arranged in Alphabetical order A-M and L-Z.

Dilemmas and choices re  running XC for school and participating at the Scottish Relay championships made it difficult probably for many of our super talented athletes with a rare clash this year.  But out athletes had Teams and Individual success in Kirkcaldy .  A Gold and Two Silvers for Teams and a 2nd and 3rd  Individual Places.

Full results at the link below . The following highlights among many great performances to  record :  In the P7 Boys M-L Race Reuben MacDonald was 2nd for his school, Tinto Primary,  The P7 Girls M-Z race saw Erin Ward taking 3rd for St Cadoc’s as the lead runner in the Team which took the Silver Team medals with Millie McGeehan [9th] Hannah Ryding  [34th] and Mhairi Kelly [51st]

Esme Dougall [8th] Ava Flynn [9th ]  Sarah Stewart [29th] and Lucy Moynihan [50th] also took the Silver Team prize for OLM . Cameron Harris [12th] and Jack Wallace [20th] were  in the Hutchesons’ Team which took the Gold Medals.

Top 10 and top 20 places also for Craig Shennan Netherlee [5th], Zac Ingles [OLM 10th] Hazel O’Donoghue Tinto [15th] and Mark MacInnes 17th for Eaglesham Primary

Well done all the athletes!
