The club had four teams in the SAIL Finals on Sunday (11th March), and four teams in the 4 x 200m Relay Championships.
In the league finals the teams were U20 Men, U20 Women, U17 Men and U17 Women. The Under 17 Women’s team (Katie Purves, Rachel Robertson, Ellen Kristoffersen, Amy Smith, Erin Feeley & Amy Frankland) were runaway winners, winning six out of the nine events to claim the title. This is the third time the team has been crowned Indoor League champions, having previously won the event in the U13 and U15 age groups.
The club were represented in the relays at U15 Boys, U15 Girls, U17 Men and U17 Women. Fielding really young teams at U15, both teams ran well, but didn’t qualify for the finals. The U17 Boys’ team (William Hutchison, Ross Henderson, Iain Lawson & Gareth Fleming) collected bronze medals in their final.
In an exciting race in the U17 Women’s event, the team of Rachel Stoakes, Katie Purves, Amy Smith and Rachel Robertson ran a fantastic race to claim another gold medal, and finish their indoor season in style. It was also a fitting way to end the last event at the Kelvin Hall for the club.
Well done to everyone who competed yesterday, and throughout the indoor season, and also to all the club’s officials, coaches and team managers.
