FVL Match 2, Sat 20th May, Meadowbank Stadium

Forth Valley League, Match 2, Saturday 20th May

It was  a tough day for Lasswade ACs young athletes, on Saturday, as they went into competition in the second of this seasons Forth Valley League Division One matches. The rain had been coming down long before athletes arrived at Meadowbank Stadium, and continued throughout the course of the afternoons match. Despite the conditions athletes from Lasswade, and the other 7 teams in competition, got on with things and managed to produce a high standard of competition.

First up on the rain soaked track was the Girls Under 15 200m races. In a great start to the day for Lasswade, Mia Downie ran superbly to take first place. Her time of 26.69 was a new personal best, and also moved her into the top ten rankings, in Scotland, for the year. Following up was Abbie Malinowski. In the tightest race of the day Abbie was beaten into second, by photo finish, by Dunfermline athlete Erin Thomson. Both athletes recording times of 27.52. After being out for a while Abbie is now getting back to somewhere near her best, and Saturdays time moves her into the toptwenty rankings for the year.

Elsewhere in the 200m there was a raft of new personal bests for Lasswade athletes. In the Under 15 boys both Adam Leighton and Aonghus Spence managed to beat their previous bests. The Under 13 runners of Skye Foster, Phoebe Kong, Alastair Scott and Max Sharman also managed new best times. Not to be outdone, Abbie Foster and Ramsay Blair also managed new bests in the Under 11 competition.

The highlight of the distance events was Hannah Harley’s run in the Under 11s 600m event. Taking it out fast from the start Hannah built up a lead over the rest of the field, which she never looked in danger of surrendering. Coming home, in a new personal best time of 1.57.15, Hannah finished well ahead of second placed runner Eilidh Ovenstone from Corstorphine.

While conditions underfoot were difficult on the track, the field events arguably had it worse. In the High Jump Lasswade Athletes Adam Leighton and Michelle Blaikie both took top spot in the Under 15s. Adam winning with a jump of 1.60m and Michelle with a jump of 1.50m. Excellent performances considering the conditions.

Also out in the track, despite a treacherous run up, Alec Miller produced a big new personal best in the javelin with a throw of 15.13m. Not far behind, in his first competition, was fellow Under 13 athlete Jan Rochon, with a throw of 13.50m. As the day wore on conditions were starting to affect most of the events. Run up areas and the track were becoming more dangerous and at one point a snow shovel was brought out to clear standing water from the shot putt circle.




There were a number of athletes competing for the first time as well.Not the best of days to get their first taste of competition for the club, but they all did a fantastic job.

As the relays approached it was becoming clear that conditions were getting the better of the day. With the track becoming increasingly dangerous, and concern for athlete safety, the decision was made to cancel the running of the relays.

Despite two fine team performances Lasswade find themselves in 7th place in the league, but only one point behind Central AC in 6th. With the two teams finishing in 7th and 8th getting relegated, everything now rests on a strong team performance by Lasswade in the third and final match of the season. The final match of the season takes place at Grangemouth Stadium on the 24th June.

Thanks to Mark Kinghorn, who was also stuck out in the rain, for the pictures.

National Relay Championships April 22nd 2017

Grangemouth Stadium was the venue for last weekends Scottish Athletics National Relay Championships. Lasswade AC took through four teams, three competing in the 4 x 100m sprint relays and one in the 3 x 800m race. On another successful day for the club two teams came away with medals. With the U15 Girls and U17 boys ( 4 x100m ) both breaking the previous Club Record Time for their events.

The Girls Under 15 team was made up of Anna Burnside, Mia Downie, Elena Clarke and Abbie Malinowski. In the morning heats the girls posted a  new Club Record time of  52.05 to qualify third fastest for the final, behind Central AC and Edinburgh AC.  Another fine run in the final secured the Bronze medal for the team, with Gold going to Edinburgh AC and Silver to Central AC. The girls final time of 52.22, although not quite as fast as in qualifying, also beat the previous Club Record for the event.

The3 x 800m relays took place in the afternoon, being decided in a one off final for each age group. Lasswade AC had one team entered at this distance, the Mens Under 17 team of Euan Hood, Magnus Tait and Christian Graham. In a hard fought race the Lasswade team ran a strong race throughout, finishing with a well earned Bronze medal, in a time of 6.21.95. Winners on the day were Falkirk Victoria Harriers with Kilbarchan finishing runners up.

Two other Lasswade AC teams were in action on the day with both producing fine performances. The Girls Under 17 team of Stephanie Ogg, Georgia Jones, Heather Mack and Shona Gristwood ran a fine race, finishing in a time  of  53.39, unfortunately  this left them outside of the medals.

The Mens  U17 team was made up of Lewis Kerr, Jordan Bathgate, Angus Cousin and Murray Blair. A time of 48.31s in the second of the mornings heats was enough not only to secure qualification for the final, but break the previous Club Record for this event by some distance. The previous record had stood at 50.10s.
