LAW and District Athletics Club's under-17 sprinters were jubilant at the recent National Junior Relay Championships in Pitreavie.
The team of Coltness High School twins Laura and Lynn Livesey , Abby Currie (Hamilton College) and Kirstie McLeod (Lesmahagow High School) won bronze medals in the 4 x 100metres event after a courageously-fought final run.
Having already celebrated setting a new club record in their heat, finishing second in 51.13 seconds, an injury scare nearly prevented them from competing in the final.
However, to their delight, they all took their deserved place in the final, with Laura successfully bringing the baton safely home in third place.
On behalf of Law and District AAC, the girls would like to thank Warburtons for their kind donation of £500 towards club tracksuits.
The Senior Championships also took place at Pitreavie, with three Law athletes representing the club.
Gary Grieve reached the 'B' Final in the 800 metres event, having set a new personal best time of 1.57.14 secs in the heats.
He then went on to take a creditable fifth place in the final.
James MacDonald and Stephen Allen also took part in the 800m heats, recording personal best times of 2.02.86 secs and 2.01.75 secs, respectively.
Meanwhile, all at the Law and District AAC belatedly congratulate Stephen Allen on winning the British Masters 800m title in 2 mins. 02.14 secs. at the Alexander Stadium, Birmingham.
