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.

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.
This years indoor U12 Superteams Championships took place last Sunday at The Emirates Arena, Glasgow and as usual proved to be one of the most popular events on the athletics calendar. The competition comprises of teams of 4 athletes each of whom takes part in a 60m race, a shot putt, a long jump and then a 4x200m relay which although ran as boys & girls races are scored as a single competition. With the vast numbers of teams wanting to compete each club is strictly limited to having 2 boys teams and 2 girls teams take part. Of the 57 girls teams competing on the day the Ayr Seaforth Girls ‘B’ Team finished 28th and the ‘A’ Team were 31st. In the boys competition there were 46 teams and the Boys ‘A’ Team were 12th while the ‘B’ Team were 14th.
There was however a highlight on the day as U11 athlete Nathan Scott broke the club record for 60m with an excellent time of 9.43s. Well done Nathan from everyone at Ayr Seaforth.
