Club News And Results

Some great results for our athletes who took park in the Outdoor Age Group Championships 2015 at Grangemouth this weekend (22/23 August)

On Saturday, Sol Stewart won his heat to go through to the semi finals of the Under 13 boys 100m with a time of 13.28. From there he came 2nd in his semi final heat with a time of 13.47, qualifying him for the final, where he managed to pick up a bronze medal with a time of 13.48.  Worth mentioning this was Sol's first competition since becoming a member fairly recently so huge well done to him.

Also on Saturday, David Lees was on great form in the Under 17 Javelin.  He managed to get a fantastic new PB with a throw of 47.82m. Overall, David came 5th which was a great achievement. 

Ross Lyttle had a fantastic run in his 800m heat and was extremely unlucky not to make the final with a great time of 2.02.35.  He maybe didn't make the final but he has a new PB he can be extremely proud of. 

Sunday saw Thomas Watson take part in the Under 15 boys 1500m where he completed his race with a time of 5.09.35 which was extremely close to his current PB . Great effort Thomas, Well Done! 

The Under 15 girls Long Jump saw Nicola Lyttle in action.  Of the two pools available, unfortunately for Nicola, she had the one with a 5 wind going against her, although she still managed a very respectable jump of 4.12m

Last but by no means least, our Under 15 boys 200m Scottish Champion, Alexander Young! Alexander qualified from his heat with a time of 25.12 before going onto win in the final with a fantastic time of 24.63. 

Sure everyone will agree.......Great Performances/Great Weekend/Great Results!!!
