Team East Lothian in the spotlights at Muller Indoor Grand Prix

Team East Lothian AC made their presence felt again on Sunday with Maria Lyle competing in the Muller Indoor Grand Prix at the Emirates Arena.  And, having qualified earlier in the year for the Scottish National Indoor Relay Championships Finals, Team East Lothian had U13 Boys and U15 Girls teams there too, competing as part of the British Athletics Club:Connect initiative.

Both teams were introduced to the crowds over the PA and video screen system and gained huge experience taking part in such a prestigious event in front a huge appreciative crowd.

The U13 Boys team of Tom Kelman, Finn Middleton, Jack Renton and Omar Bajo ran a great race round the banked track with some solid baton passing to finish just outside the medals in fourth place.


The U15 Girls team of Marcia Callander,  Laura Buchan, Lucy Thomson and Lily Middleton also showed great promise with some solid sprinting but again just missed out on the medals in 4th place.


Maria Lyle also had a good day and continued her preparations for the Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast with a new 60m PB of 9.25.
