Scottish Womens League 2015

Scottish Women’s League, Match 1, On 26th April 2015 At Meadowbank

It was a cold windy day at Meadowbank for the first Scottish Women’s League match.  Exams and conflicting events affected the number of athletes available and it was a small team that travelled through to Edinburgh however everyone pulled together to cover as many events as possible so we could maximise our points.

In the U13s there were good performances by Grace and Rhian in the 100m (14.42/15.26), Rhian and Niamh in the 800m (2:36.87/2:42.83).  Along with Nicole, Skye and Jennifer they covered a lot of events to try to score as many points as possible. The relay team was particularly unlucky to finish fifth in 1:00.12 in a close race

The U15 team saw excellent performances by Alice who won the A Discus with 26.20m and was third in the A Shot Putt with 8.30.  Rebecca took third in the B 200m in in 27.57 with Adrienne second in the B 800m with 2:31.32  .  They were backed by strong performances from Eve, Monica, Amy, Emma, Beth, Jade and Cara who deserves a special mention for bravely stepping  up to A string 75mH when Jade had to pull out after her 100m. 

In the U17 good points were scored by Regan with third in the A 300m in 43.45 and Charlotte in the A Discus with 30.83m.  They were ably supported by Emily, Roseanna and Jennifer and together they covered multiple events.

The Senior team was a bit low on numbers because of exams and the Scottish Unis the previous day.  Notable performances came from Claire who was first in the B  Discus with 28.12m, Katie third in the  A Shot with 10.28m and Steph who was second in the 1500m with a new PB of 4:47.65. They, along with Sophie, Jane and Katie, covered a lot of events to try to get points for the team.

Thanks must go to the Team Managers and officials: Jan, Lynn, Theresa, Donald and Anne with special thanks to Jennifer and Sharon for helping out with team management on the day.

Despite a great effort from everyone, we finished in eighth place but hopefully by the next match with the exams over and the weather better, we can field a bigger team and finish a lot higher.
