Scottish Schools Indoor Athletics Championship

Athletics 2

The Emirates Arena in Glasgow was once again the venue for the two day Scottish Schools Indoor Athletics Championship.

Two of the school’s top athletes (Marissa M and Callum S) qualified to take part in this prestigious event and both performed extremely well in this highly competitive environment.

On day one Marissa started things off very well winning her 200m heat with a time of 27 .39sec in the U16 Girls 200m, and narrowly missing out in her final coming 3rd in the semi-final heat.

On day two Marissa started things off again with a strong run in the 60m sprint, qualifying for the semi-final with a time of 8.05sec but once again narrowly missed out on the final. She also competed in the U16 Long Jump later on that day.

Marissa deserves a great deal of credit for her first indoor championship.

Callum S was an outstanding competitor on day two. He manage to fight off most of the other competitors winning a silver medal in the boys O16 high jump with a best jump of 1.95m. Only narrowly missing out on gold on a countback.

Well done to both athletes!!
