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.
