University & Schools Success for GNAC

A number of outstanding performances on display at the SUCA and SSAA Championships from Giffnock Athletes as reported by Croy Thomson & Billy Glasgow! First of all the SUCA success


RACHEL ALEXANDER, competing for Strathclyde University, won the ladies long jump title at the Scottish Universities Indoor Championships last Saturday in Emirates Arena. Rachel’s 5.97 meter effort set a new championship best performance and she is now turning her attention to this weekend’s British Universities event in Sheffield. Well done to all our other athletes who turned out for their universities, including mentions with distinction for:
