What a great day for Motherwell AC athletes at the YDL Scottish final in Grangemouth on Sunday 31st July. There were more fabulous PBs and medal winning performances. Every single one of our athletes did the Club proud once again and it was great to see them all give their very best today. Thanks to everyone who came along to support and help, and to all of Team NL for making the journey from the trials on 12 March, through the three matches to the final, a well organised and memorable one for us all.
The day got off to a good start with Stuart Hawkins bagging a massive 24cm silver medal winning PB in the long jump. Stuart was also a member of the U13B 4x100m relay team which won a silver medal in an exciting race at the end of the day. Stuart Russell also won a silver medal for another exceptional PB performance this year in the U13B 800m.
The 4x100m U13G relay saw a strong performance from Jenna Booth who also delivered a great PB in her 75m race. Both Cavan Marie Ryan and Beth Agnew were delighted to achieve well deserved PBs in the LJ.

The next competition coming up in our calendar is the OG Meet at Wishaw on 10th August. It would be great to see lots of MAC vests there competing and supporting a local event.

We had around 40 athletes competing in MAC vests on Saturday 12th March at Wishaw. The results included lots of PBs, medals and performances full of promise for the upcoming summer season.
A huge well done to everyone who competed and many thanks again to parents, friends and athletes/coaches for their much appreciated help and support.
