National Cross Country Championships – Falkirk – 27/02/2016

The National Cross Country Championships took place on Saturday 27 February 2016 at Callendar Park in Falkirk. It was a beautiful sunny day, the temperature mild and the course, with a few changes from last year, looked fantastic!

This is the highlight of the cross country season in Scotland with clubs and individuals from all over the country competing.

This was one of the events being used for selection for the London Mini Marathon and also the inter counties cross country championships. Anyone in the under 15 and 17 age groups with aspirations of either event would have to perform well today.

There were lots of great performances for full report please click the link below:

Scottish Schools 3 & 4 February 2016, Emirate

Scottish Schools Athletics. Indoor championships
3&4 February 2016

Lasswade had a significant number of athletes performing in school colours over the two days. A breakdown of their performance is included below

In terms of a medals haul
Cameron Steven, Sarah Tait won silver in the 800s Henry Clarkson win silver in the long jump
Lauren Dickson won Bronze in the 1500
Bryony Patterson won bronze in the long jump

Special mentions for Abbie’s Malinowski’s performance. This was a PB time for her and at only 12 years old and still in S1 she was the youngest athlete in the semi-finals.

Also to Hannah Little who smashed her PB and just missed out on a medal in the 800. Having just turned 13 years her future attempts at the schools look very promising.!6229&authkey=!AGbeI4b0fuuPZA8
