Sunday 9th August saw the YDL Final at Grangemouth Stadium where our U17s represented the club in the Track & Field Challenge Final.
We had 6 medal winners in all. Andrew O’Donnell won silver in the Pole Vault, clearing 2.70m, and bronze in the Shot Putt with a PB of 10.05m; particularly impressive in that he competed in both at the same time! There was a Silver medal for Liam Wynne in the Long Jump with 6.19m and for Robyn Connolly in the Hammer with 34.36m.
There were bronze medals for Holly Little in the 1500m, Reagan Binnie in 800m and Nicky Brechany in 200m. Others worthy of a mention are: Charlie Milarvie, who ran a PB by 15s in the 1500m with 4:32.87; and Lewis Serpell who ran a PB of 24.03s in the 200m and also successfully multi-tasked running a PB of 2:07.69 in the 800m at the same time as competing in Long Jump.
Against strong opposition the club came 7th overall but a healthy 2nd in the field events.
