SuperTeams 2024

There were lots of great performances from our small team of 12 at the Saughton heat of the SuperTeams today. Over 120 athletes took part in the competition which comprises of a 75m race, a standing long jump and a (turbo) javelin throw. All results are converted into points to decide the overall winner and team placings.

Although billed as an under 12s competition, a late change to the cut-off dates for the competition led to a little bit of confusion as the results were announced and some of under 12s were reclassified as under 14s. However, it did mean that Lasswade walked away with a few more medals! In the under 14 girls, Ada and Katie took silver and bronze and in the under 12s, Lara took another silver home for Lasswade. Unfortunately, with only 2 boys representing Lasswade, we only had one complete team (two girls, two boys) who finished 4th and qualified for the final in June.

Well done to our 12 athletes: Neave, Katie, Lara, Ada, Kupa Ayla, Anatswa, Corrie, Amber, Orla, Lachlan and Isla. I’m pretty certain they all had a great time and it would be good to see more athletes (especially boys) turning out next time.

Thank you to our friends at Harmeny and Corstophine for organising the heat and to our coaches who got the athletes ready for the competition.
