Gold for Lasswade duo

Two Lasswade Athletics Club athletes became Scottish Champions at last weekend’s National Age Group Championships at Grangemouth.

The two day Scottish Championships are the last major athletics event of the season, and the club’s athletes were keen to finish the season on a successful note. They achieved this in some style, taking home three gold, three silver, and two bronze medals.

High jumper Robert Ferguson claimed a double gold, taking the U18 men’s title on Saturday (1.86m), before returning on Sunday to claim the U20 men’s title (1.95m).
