The second race of this winter’s East District Cross Country League took place at Camperdown Park in Dundee at the weekend.
Numbers for Lasswade AC were disappointing for a variety of reasons but we only had complete teams in three age groups u13 girls, u15 boys and u15/17 girls who are combined. In the u11’s we only had one athlete Laura Kitchin running in her first league match and running very well to finish 16th. There were no U11 boys.
We had three u13 girls, Beth McWilliam who led the girls home in 17th place followed closely by Louise Thomson in 20th place and Eilidh Mowbray persuaded to run on her birthday in 41st place – hope that you enjoyed the rest of your Birthday Eilidh!!
In the u13 boys we only had one athlete Nathan Lawrence who finished in 46th place.
The u15 and u17 girls run together and we had four athletes in this race, Olivia Meikle had a solid run in 9th, with team mate Freya Mowbray having a strong run in 15th followed by Bethan Kitchin in 37th and Skye Foster 51st.
We had five under 15 boys competing yesterday. Andrew McWilliam led them and the rest of the field home with a strong run in 1st place, he was closely followed by team mate Rowan Taylor in 2nd place. Our third athlete and last counter for the team was Patrick Snowden in 25th place giving the team 2nd place on the day. Will Heatlie was next home for Lasswade in 40th followed by Cian Murray in 41st.
Alex Miller was our only u17 male athlete and finished in 32nd place.
Amy Smith, Rachel Fagan and Debra Urquhart were our three athletes in the ladies race. First home in 11th place was Amy Smith followed by Rachel Fagan in 71st and Debra Urquhart in 84th place.
The final race of the day was the men and we had two athletes David Woods and Derrick Brydon. David led the Lasswade men home in 47th place with Derrick in 175th place.
