Scottish 4 x 100m Relay Age Group Championships – Grangemouth Stadium
The club had four teams in the Scottish 4 x 100m Relay Age Group Championships at Grangemouth today, and all teams represented their club well.
The U13 Boys’ team (Alastair Scott, Dexter Howard, Harry Officer & David Malloy) finished 3rd in their heat, qualifying for the final where they finished 7th. This was a good achievement from the young team who are all still eligible for the U13 age group next season.
The U15 Boys’ team (Adam Leighton, Jamie Kinghorn, Angus Cousin & Josh Howard) were 2nd in their heat and 4th in the final, while the U15 Girls’ (Mia Downie, Michelle Blaikie, Kirsty MacEwan & Stephanie Ogg) finished sixth in their heat.
Our U17 Women’s team (Shona Gristwood, Bryony Patterson, Rachel Elder & Georgia Jones) had some changeover issues, and unfortunately never finished their heat.
This is the most teams we have had in the relay championships for a number of years, so well done to all who took part and hopefully we can have as many – if not more – teams in next year’s championships.

Congratulations to all Team Edinburgh Athletes , team managers, officials ,helpers and parents and coaches
Once again they have had a very successful 2016 and after an exciting match down at York University yesterday the team, which included a large number of Lasswade competitors, finished 7 points ahead of Team Glasgow yesterday, securing victory on the day and winning the league title.
This has been a real team effort with a substantial number of athletes being used in one or more of the matches.
That just leaves the small matter of the national finals on the first weekend in September in Bedford to look forward to
Well done all !!
