The annual Pan Lanarkshire Athletics event took place at the brand new John Cummings Athletics Stadium at Carluke last week.
This is, first of all, a marvellous facility boasting an 8-lane track and 4G astro surface. Unfortunately the North Lanarkshire team were struggling right from the outset due to the postponed North Lanarkshire finals day, there was precious little time to get a squad organised with several events completely devoid of NLC representatives.
Dalziel usually has a good sized group involved but with several other trips organised for the Pan Lanarkshire Day several athletes were unable to attend.Very pleasingly the Dalziel athletes on show all made important contributions returning from Carluke with a medal each.
The results were as follows:
- Alex Dunn
Gold S1 Boys 800m, Bronze S1 Boys Long Jump
- Craig Connacher
Silver S2 Boys 200m
- Alison McNeill
Silver S2 Girls Javelin
- Carla Jackson
Silver S2 Girls Long Jump
- Chloe Thomson
Bronze S2 Girls 100m
- S2 Girls Relay squad
Carla Jackson, Chloe Thomson, Nicole Sutherland, Kaitlyn Best) Bronze S2 Girls 4x100m Relay
Despite the above achievements, South ran out very convincingly with a massive win over North.
Here’s to next year!
