SDS National Junior Athletics Championships
Wednesday 5th June saw 22 Lothian athletes compete against others from across the country. The Championships, held at Grangemouth Stadium, are a firm favourite in the calendar and historically Lothian athletes have always performed well. This year was no different, as each athlete returned home with at least one medal - fantastic performances all round!
The Lothian team was comprised of athletes who had performed well at our Regional Athletics Championships in May, and included young people from 3 of the 4 local authorities in Lothian. Our full team was as follows: Tiffany Panton, Nathan Gardner, Kyle Schuller, Josiah Adusei, David Lancastle (Kaimes); Abby Bryson, David Pele, Dean Hamilton, Ben McDougall, Jade Isdale (Pinewood); Jenny Doyle, Billie-Jo Faulds, Dylan Kean, Robert Findlay, Rosie Pink-Smith (Cedarbank); Jonathan Daniel, Max Alexander (Elphinstone PS); Finlay Menzies (Balerno HS); Leona Loftus-Stewart (St Gabriel's PS) and Kate Snodgrass (George Watson's).
Congratulations to all athletes involved and a huge thank you to the teachers, school staff, parents and volunteers who help to make these events such a success.
