National Relays and Masters Championships – Grangemouth – Sunday 16 June 2013

Sunday 16 June proved to be an excellent day in the Grangemouth sunshine for 2 of the Seaforth teams competing at this years National Relay Championships. There were several teams competing in both the 4 x 100m and 3 x 800m championships at the various age groups for both girls and boys. After the vast number of heats were run Seaforth had teams in the girls u14 3 x 800m final, boys u14 3 x 800m final, boys u16 3 x 800m final, boys u14 4 x 100m final and the boys u16 4 x 100m final.

First up were the u14 girls 3 x 800m where Seaforth had 3 teams competing. In heat 1 the B team finished in 5th position while the C team were 7th in heat 2 and the A team were 3rd in heat 3 qualifying for the final.

Next up were the boys u14 3 x 800m where Seaforth had 2 teams entered. In heat 1 the A team comprising of Ross Nicolson, Steven Martin and Daniel Martin won by a 10 second margin thus qualifying for the final. In heat 2 the B team were simply outrun by much bigger and stronger boys and finished in 6th place but their time will surely come in this age group.

The girls u16 3 x 800m teams were next on the track with Seaforth having 2 teams running although this was in no small part due to Hannah Birrell agreeing at very short notice to fill a space in a race, she had to borrow kit to run a distance she had never ran before so a big thanks to her for that. Unfortunately neither team made the final with the A team finishing 5th in heat 2 and the B team 5th in heat 3.

In the boys u16 3 x 800m there was a solitary team entered comprising of Fraser Stirling, Lewis Ross & Jamie Brotherston, they ran a very difficult race in heat 2 working very hard indeed for a creditable 3rd place finish and a place in the final.

The first final was the girls u14 where the A team ran well to finish in 6th place. Following on was the boys u14 final which was led from start to finish by Seaforth. The first leg narrowly went to Ross Nicolson who handed the baton over to Steven Martin. Steven who is ranked 1st in Scotland and 9th UK in his age group for 800m was never in any danger of being caught and opened up a very healthy lead to hand over to his twin brother Daniel. Daniel who amazingly is ranked 2nd in Scotland and 14th UK in his age group for 800m less than a second behind his brother increased their lead to bring home the gold medal.

Next was the turn of the 4 x 100m teams. First up was the girls u14 where we had a single team entered. Despite a 2nd place finish in heat 1 their time unfortunately didn’t see them reach the final.

The single boys u14 team had a comfortable win in heat 1 qualifying them for the final.

The boys u16 team were 3rd in heat 1 with a time that saw them reach their final later in the day.

In the boys u14 final the team of Robbie Swift, Callum Meldrum, Declan McGhee and Fraser Angus ran an excellent race to finish in silver medal position by the merest of margins…they were 0.7seconds behind the winners Giffnock North A team.

The boys u16 final only had 7 teams competing instead of the usual 8 owing to the fact that an amazing 5 teams had been disqualified in the two heats. Unfortunately the Ayr teams efforts couldn’t carry them to a medal position with them finishing in 5th place.

Also in action were Gwen McFarlane (W55) and Bobby Stevenson (M60). Gwen won gold in the discus ( 20.19m ) and javelin ( 18.58m ) as well as silver in the hammer ( 23.32m ) and shot putt ( 7.31m ). Bobby won gold in the 300m hurdles ( 45.46secs ).
