Glasgow Jaguars came up with an excellent fourth place finish in their second National Athletics League fixture in Kingston.

The professional and respectful manner in which Glasgow Jaguar athletes and Officials dealt with challenging situations as a result of some poorly maintained equipment at the venue was noticeable and drew praise from elsewhere.

Alyson Bell and Brodie Young put in strong performances as they chase individual spots in the GB team for the World Junior Championships in Columbia.

A wind speed of + 3.6 robbed Alyson of another new Scottish U20 record as she finished third in a strong field in 11.49 while there was another sub 47 performance for Brodie as he finished third in 46.81 in very blustery conditions.

Sarah Malone continued her excellent season with a windy 11.71 to finish in second places in the B races at 100m and 200m. In the non-scoring men’s 100s Ethan Pottie recorded a new PB of 10.62 and it was a PB for Cian O’Donnell with 10.77.

Murray Fotheringham lowered his PB to 21.45 finishing second in the B200 and the men finished second in the 4x100m in a swift 41.64 while the women were victorious in the 4x400m.

Over the barriers Emily Craig lowered her season’s best in the 400m H to 60.52 for a second place finish while Hannah Wallace recorded a PB with 15.01 in the sprint hurdles.

It was maximum points for Emily McNicol in the A string 2000m steeplechase while Lauren Stoddart, in her third event of the day, recorded a win in the B 2000m steeplechase

Competing in the 1500m, Carolyn Cameron finally managed to better the PB she set at the age of 14 while Anise Macaulay Orr took advantage of the opportunity to set an outdoor PB of 2.15.64 in the 800m.

In difficult conditions, Molly Reville and Anna Forbes contributed valuable points with second place finishes in the A and B Long Jumps and in the Triple Jump it was a welcome return to competition for Miraji Ahmed following serious injury.

Alexander MacKay recorded a PB of 42.93 to finish second in the B discus, making the long trip from Inverness worthwhile. Making her debut for the team, Dawn Russell was rewarded with a third place finish and a new PB of 40.65 in the javelin.

Every athlete, Official, team manager and coach played their part in what was an excellent team effort, and the club are indebted to the support they have received from Glasgow Life, Joma and Tru Wealth.

The next match is on July 2 at Woodford Green.
