Scottish 4 x 100m Relay Age Group Championships – Grangemouth Stadium
The club had four teams in the Scottish 4 x 100m Relay Age Group Championships at Grangemouth today, and all teams represented their club well.
The U13 Boys’ team (Alastair Scott, Dexter Howard, Harry Officer & David Malloy) finished 3rd in their heat, qualifying for the final where they finished 7th. This was a good achievement from the young team who are all still eligible for the U13 age group next season.
The U15 Boys’ team (Adam Leighton, Jamie Kinghorn, Angus Cousin & Josh Howard) were 2nd in their heat and 4th in the final, while the U15 Girls’ (Mia Downie, Michelle Blaikie, Kirsty MacEwan & Stephanie Ogg) finished sixth in their heat.
Our U17 Women’s team (Shona Gristwood, Bryony Patterson, Rachel Elder & Georgia Jones) had some changeover issues, and unfortunately never finished their heat.
This is the most teams we have had in the relay championships for a number of years, so well done to all who took part and hopefully we can have as many – if not more – teams in next year’s championships.
