Scottish National 3x800m Relays – Saturday 14 April 2018 – Grangemouth

This years Scottish National 3x800m Relays took place on Saturday at Grangemouth Stadium. Conditions were ideal for athletics on the day although a somewhat depleted Seaforth contingent took part owing to many of those who would normally compete being unavailable. There was however an U13 Girls and an U13 Boys team competing.

The U13 Girls team of Iona Hubbard, Sophie McColm and Emma McMillan ran in Heat 1 coming home in 4th place with a time of 8:29.27, with athletics rules stating this age group cannot run more than one race in a day of 800m or over the final results were based on times from the respective Heats which meant the girls were place 10th overall from the 19 teams taking part.

The U13 Boys team of Callum Peat, Connor Scobie and Daniel Byers ran in Heat 2 taking 3rd place in a time of 7:51.67 which gave them an overall 5th place from the 19 teams competing.

Well done to you all.

National Indoor U13/U20 Championships – Emirates Arena,Glasgow – Saturday 10 March 2018

Today saw this seasons U13 National Indoor Championships take place at The Emirates Arena, Glasgow with several Ayr Seaforth athletes competing. There were some excellent performances including that of Adam Currie who took 3rd in the U13 1500m but surely the one that would be considered the performance of the day was the run by Erin Ramsay in the 200m final. Having already broken the National record in the heats she smashed the record again with a winning time of 26.83s. This time puts Erin at number 1 in the Scottish U13 Indoor All Time Rankings and sees her ranked 1st in the current UK U13 rankings. Unfortunately there are no UK All time rankings for this age group but she would surely be very well placed.

Scottish National Cross Country Championships – Saturday 24 February 2018 – Callender Park, Falkirk

This years National Cross Country Championships took place at Callender Park, Falkirk on Saturday in conditions completely different from last year when it was a washout. There was a much smaller contingent from Seaforth this year but those who did compete had a memorable day. 

First off were the U13 Girls with Seaforth but a problem with the chip timing system for this race has left it somewhat difficult to provide accurate times for those outside the top finishers. What is without question is that the finish order for Seaforth was Islay Hubbard 35th (no time), Tess Crooks 67th (15:13), Sophie McColm 74th (15:16), 

The U13 Boys race was next and by this race the timing system was fully operational. Adam Currie led the Seaforth athletes home taking 38th position in a time of 2:42 for the 3100m course followed by Brodie McGregor 91st (13:30), Connor Scobie 119th (13:58) and Calum Moir 120th (3:59).

The U15 Girls race was next over a 4100m course and it was in this race that the Seaforth performance of the day was witnessed with Rosie Davidson narrowly missing out on a podium finish taking 4th place in 15:39. She was followed by team mates Isla Kirk 44th (17:42), Morven Hubbard 49th (17:49), Kitty Cooper-Hinton 117th (19:59) and Efthalia Karouzaki 33rd (22:19).

The U15 Boys raced over the same course with sole Seaforth representative Alex Crooks finishing in 67th place with a time of 16:15.

The only U17 athlete from Seaforth was U17 Woman Emma Frew who raced over a 6000m course to take 13th place in 26:25.

With there also being no U20 athletes from the club it was left to the Senior Men to complete Seaforth participation on the day. As usual this race has an enormous number of athletes competing with no fewer than 623 this year. The first home wearing the red cross of Seaforth was Kenny Neill who took 96th place after running over 10000m in a time of 38:01 followed by Alasdair Meldrum 347th (44:19), Iain Pettigrew 460th (47:43), Laurence Baker 468th (47:59), Ian Morrison 530th (50:45) and Stuart McColm 556th (52:30).
