Youth Development League – Match 2

Sunday, 22nd May – Ayrshire Athletics Arena, Kilmarnock

The next fixture will soon be upon us so please get in touch if you’re interested in competing (Under 13s and Under 15s only unfortunately). It would be good to build on the numbers who have already competed on the track already this season.

If you haven’t competed for us already, you will need a Scottish Athletics membership number. These can sometimes take a day or two to sort out, so please get in touch sooner rather than later so that your athlete doesn’t miss out!

Email competitions@lasswade-ac.org.uk to sign up or speak to your coach.

Forth Valley League – Match 1

After a 2 year covid-inflicted break, the Forth Valley League returned to a sunny Livingston today. This is a great league to start competing in – some of Scotland’s top athletes have competed in the league in years gone by and some have even gone on to the Olympics!

Team Lasswade competing in a tough division 1, had track debuts from Laura, Florence, Megan and Lucy. They were joined by Mia, Abbie, Eloise, Bethan and Yasmin to make up the small, but growing Lasswade team.

There were great performances all round including a 32 second PB in the 800m from Bethan. Admittedly, the absence of competitions due to covid has meant that there haven’t been as many opportunities to compete but it goes to show that all the hard work that our athletes have put in over the last two years with the help of our dedicated coaches is paying off.

Our next event for the Under 13 and Under 15 athletes is the Youth Development League at Kilmarnock on Sunday, May 22nd followed by the 2nd Match for the Forth Valley League at Grangemouth on Sunday ,12th June (we’ll be competing in the afternoon so you’ll be able to have a bit of a lie-in!)

Please email competitions@lasswade-ac.org.uk to register your interest.

YDL Match 1 – Kilmarnock

This weekend was the turn of the younger Lasswade Athletes to compete. Six athletes made their way to Kilmarnock to compete in the first fixture of the Youth Development League, with Mia (75m, 800m and Long Jump) and Corey (Long Jump, 100m) making their debuts for the club.

We’re still waiting on the final results, but there were some encouraging performances for the rest of the season. Eloise ran finished 3rd in the 300m and was close to a PB in the shot put despite it being immediately after her race. Abbie ran well in the 800m – her first appearance on the track since before lockdown. Yasmin (100m) and Ruairidh (300m, 800m and Long Jump) both moved up to the Under 15 age group this season and are already looking forward to their next competitions. Although we don’t have results, we’re pretty certain Ruairidh went home with a PB in his 800m.

Well done to all the athletes for turning out today – it was great to be at a competition today without the restrictions that have been enforced over the last two seasons.

Results will appear on the The Power of 10 in the next few days.

The next YDL fixture is on May 22nd at Kilmarnock again. This is a great league to compete in with lots of events to choose from. It would be great to see more Lasswade athletes at the next fixture. Send an email to competitions@lasswade-ac.org.uk to register your interest or speak to your coach.

Thanks to the Lasswade officials – Susan, John and Ruth, without whom these competitions cannot go ahead.
