This weekend was the turn of the younger Lasswade Athletes to compete. Six athletes made their way to Kilmarnock to compete in the first fixture of the Youth Development League, with Mia (75m, 800m and Long Jump) and Corey (Long Jump, 100m) making their debuts for the club.
We’re still waiting on the final results, but there were some encouraging performances for the rest of the season. Eloise ran finished 3rd in the 300m and was close to a PB in the shot put despite it being immediately after her race. Abbie ran well in the 800m – her first appearance on the track since before lockdown. Yasmin (100m) and Ruairidh (300m, 800m and Long Jump) both moved up to the Under 15 age group this season and are already looking forward to their next competitions. Although we don’t have results, we’re pretty certain Ruairidh went home with a PB in his 800m.
Well done to all the athletes for turning out today – it was great to be at a competition today without the restrictions that have been enforced over the last two seasons.
Results will appear on the The Power of 10 in the next few days.
The next YDL fixture is on May 22nd at Kilmarnock again. This is a great league to compete in with lots of events to choose from. It would be great to see more Lasswade athletes at the next fixture. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest or speak to your coach.
Thanks to the Lasswade officials – Susan, John and Ruth, without whom these competitions cannot go ahead.
