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.
Closing date is fast approaching for the open graded at Meadowbank on 28 February.
Cut off is 15 February however sprints coach Gordon Robertson is prepared to take entry forms and hand them in with monies. He will only accept them until them until Thursday 11 February 2016

Only two Lasswade athletes as far as I can see from the results
Both Ben Mitchell and Linden Nicholson acquitted themselves well with Ben finishing a credible 72nd overall and 15th in his age Group. Linden had another strong performance finishing 46th overall and 2 nd in her age group.
Well done to both runners
