U12 Superteams 2021

It was an early start for the U12 Superteams athletes and their parents on Saturday the 19th of June.  The weather on the way up was very wet but by the time we reached Aberdeen, it was warm and sunny and it stayed that way for the rest of the day.

Team Managers for the day were Nikki Caig, Hazel Gray, Edward Jarvis, Graeme Laing, Scott Murray and Linda Innes in charge of 3 x Boys teams and 3 x Girls teams.  24 athletes in total.

There were 32 Clubs from all over Scotland competing, comprising 22 Boys teams and 26 Girls teams.  Teams consisted of 4 athletes who each had to compete in a 75m, 4 x 100m Relay, Long Jump and Turbo Javelin.  There were some very impressive results especially in the Turbo Jav event.  I’m sure that the athletes even surprised themselves!

Very well done to our Girls ‘A’ team who won Bronze with a total score of 1116 points.  Team consisted of Lilly Caig, Sophie Chalmers, Bella Gray and Layla Rowlands.

Commiserations to our Boys ‘A’ Team who missed out on 3rd place with a total score of 1193 points which was only 11 points behind the 3rd place winners, Dunfermline.

VP-Glasgow athlete of the day went to Layla Rowlands who was 3rd Girls athlete overall for the event.  Layla and Bella Gray were 1st and 3rd overall respectively in the 75m with times of 11.15s and 11.48s.

Rhuaridh Laing was 7th Boys athlete overall for the event.  Rhuaridh and Theo MacAdam were 8th and 9th overall in the Boys 75m with times of 11.28s and 11.31s.

This all bodes very well for our up-and-coming young athletes going forward.

Very well done to everyone who took part in the U12 Superteams – you were all great company and were a credit to your parents and to your club with your good-natured enjoyment and enthusiasm at taking part.
