East District Cross Country League – Broxburn – 14/01/2017

The final match in this winter’s East District Cross Country League took place at Broxburn on Saturday 14 January 2017.

There were was a great turn out for Lasswade AC with a total of thirty five athletes taking part throughout the day. The only incomplete teams were the under 15 boys and the Senior Ladies so we will need to work on that for next season!

There were a number of fine performances throughout the day in all of the age groups. In the under 11 boys, Ross Wolfenden finished 4th overall, followed by team mates Robert Rowlands 12th and third counter Cameron Chambers 17th. The team finished 2nd equal in the league narrowly missing winning the league by 4pts.

In the under 13 boys we had our first individual winner of the day with Harry Henriksen continuing his run of unbeaten races with another fine performance.


Our under 17 men also did well with three finishers in the top 10 Magnus Tait 6th, Euan Hood 8th and Christian Graham 10th. This meant they were top team on the day and finished 2nd in the league to Fife AC.









In the under 15 girls and under 17 ladies which is run as a combined race we had our second individual winner of the day with Lauren Dickson putting in a fine performance to win the race comfortably by 30 seconds. Lauren was followed home by team mate Sarah Tait 11th and third counter Abby McGlone 23rd.   This gave the girls 3rd position on the day and also in the league.

Well done to all the athletes that took part and congratulations on your fine performances.

The Great Edinburgh International Cross Country

The Great Edinburgh International Cross Country took place in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh on Saturday 7 January 2017. The inter district cross country championships were held as part of this event and a number of Lasswade AC athletes were selected for the East of Scotland team.

Harry Henriksen who has been running well all season was in the under 13 boys race. Harry was in a group pf three runners to break away over the first two of the three lap course. He had been sitting in 3rd postion behind AndrewMcGill (East) and Fraser Sproul (West) when he made his move mid way through the final lap opening a gap to finish seven seconds ahead of Andrew McGill who was followed closely by Fraser Sproul.

In the under 17 women we had two athletes competing, Lauren Dickson and Sarah Tait. Lauren was with the leading group which included Naomi Lang, Clare Stewart and Eloise Walker (All East) for most of the race. It was only mid way through the final lap that some small gaps began to appear, however Lauren dug deep fighting all the way to the finish with an impressive 4th place. Team mate Sarah Tait who has a difficult season to date also ran well in one of her best races of the season finishing in 15th place.

Lasswade also had two runners in the under 17 men’s race, Magnus Tait and Christian Graham. Both boys have been running consistently well this season. Magnus, who would probably have preferred a course with a few more hills, finished a creditable 20th place with Christian in his first cross country season finishing in 31st place.

The east team won gold in all three of the above races.

Congratulations and well done to all the athletes on their performances.

Merry Christmas

2016 has been another successful year for the Club. This has been achieved through excellent individual performances and good team spirit, demonstrated in the many leagues and events in which we participate. This involvement is wide ranging and includes  Cross Country, Track and Field and Indoor Athletics.

The Club also organises three  major events. The Road Race in March, Club Championship in September and the Cross Country in October. These events have been part of the LAC calendar for many years and are a testament to the host of  volunteers who assist each year.

Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone connected with the Club.  Our Volunteers and Scottish Athletic Officials who make everything possible.  Our Coaches who dedicate many hours each week to ensuring all our Athletes gain every opportunity to have fun and reach their full potential in athletics.  Our Athletes who support the Club and help to grow our status within the Athletics and indeed the wider Community.  Our partners (Scottish Athletics and Midlothian Council) and our Sponsors who support  the Club year in and year out.

A very Merry Christmas to everyone and best wishes for a happy and peaceful 2017.
