Scottish Athletics National League

The first match of the SNAL took place on Saturday and athletes enjoyed sunshine and a “back to the future” event where there was an inter club element. 

 The event was well supported by parents, Edinburgh officials, and coaches.

 The new format provides competition for all those in the club wishing to compete in the U17 to Senior age groups and it was fantastic to see some of our Master athletes, enjoying the experience.   

Full results and points totals for each age group can be found below but the overall team rankings show EAC, sitting in second position only 52.5 points behind VPCOG, with  the U17 Women and the Senior men, leading the way with first place finishes.

There were individual wins and maximum points from
 Rory Brogan in the U17 100m with a PB of 11.25 into a -1.3 wind, 
 Mateo Hughes in the U20 event with a legal PB time of 11.45,
and it was a 1,2 in the Mens 400m with
Max Leslie winning in a PB of 48.62
Bradley Francis finishing in 2nd place in a PB time of 49.76. 

Mateo, Max, Bradley and Samuel Okpadje stormed to victory in the 4×100 relay.

 There was a 2nd place finish for both the Senior Women’s relay and the U17 women’s relay.

Not to be outdone by her sister Hannah Cameron who for many years an EAC stalwart, until she relocated to Aberdeen, set a huge PB in the 800m,
Carolyn Cameron recorded a PB of 10. 29.94 in finishing 2nd in the Womens 3K. 

This was an excellent start and registration for  Match 2 in Aberdeen on the 28th  May will be sent out when we have full details of the events and timetable. 

There will be a free coach to the event and Aberdeen is an excellent venue with a fast track.

It  would be fantastic to see as many athletes as possible, representing the club and consolidating EAC’s position as contenders for the number 1 position.
