Report by Gordon Robertson
In today’s New Year Sprint at Musselburgh Race Course, two of the club’s athletes made the final, finishing in 3rd and 4th place.
Keiran Reilly and Jordan Charters both won their semi-finals, while Charlie Carstairs finished 4th in his race and missed out on qualification for the final.
In a tight final Keiran just pipped Jordan for 3rd place, clocking 11.44s to Jordan’s 11.45s.
To all our Club Members and Supporters – have a great year.
On Wednesday 30th December, in difficult conditions – in the middle of ‘Storm Frank’ – four Lasswade athletes competed in the heats for the 147th New Year Sprint at Meadowmill Sports Centre.
In the main event – the 110m Handicap – Jordan Charters, Keiran Reilly and Charlie Carstairs all won their heats to qualify for the semi finals on New Year’s Day, while Rachel Robertson finished 2nd in her heat, but unfortunately didn’t qualify this year.
Rachel also competed in the women’s only event, winning her heat and going on to finish sixth in the final.
Keiran completed a fine day for the club’s sprinters winning the 90m final and 1st prize of £300.
Well done to all the athletes and good luck to Jordan, Keiran and Charlie as they chase the title and first prize of £4000 at Musselburgh Race Course on New Year’s Day.
