Good weekend for Lasswade athletes

It WAS a good weekend for Lasswade Athletics Club athletes at the recent Loughborough Senior International Trials and U16/U18 Open Championships held at Scotstoun Stadium Glasgow.

Eighteen-year-old Greg Louden, currently ranked number one 400m runner in Scotland at U20 level, ran a season’s best performance of 47.80s to finish second in his 400m heat and qualify for the Scotland Senior Men’s 4x400m relay squad for the Loughborough International this Sunday.

At the same event, Niall Sheehan set a new PB of 14:49.14 while finishing eighth in the men’s 1500m race.
