Young Athletes League

Scottish Young Athletes League Final – Grangemouth, 23 August 2009

 The SYAL final resulted in a convincing win for Edinburgh AC and once again our young athletes will be representing Scotland in the UK final in Birmingham; Giffnock, as runners up, will represent Scotland in the Auxiliary final – Good luck to the athletes from both clubs who will be competing in Birmingham. Top performance came from Emily Dudgeon who set a new league record of 2.12.28 in the U17 women’s 800m. Our strength in depth showed with not only excellent results in the ‘A’ strings but a large number of winners and second places in the B string events.
