Twelve athletes from North Ayrshire Athletics Club headed through to Grangemouth to compete in the last outdoor individual championship of the season last weekend - with some great performances in all ages groups.

The club was represented in the under-13 age group by Sophie, Lilly, Lola and Emy. Sophie clocked 13.48 seconds for hurdles, and threw a 4.35m shot put - both PBs for her. Lilly made it to the final of the shot put and produced an impressive PB of 7.22m and also gained a new PB of 13.10 secs in hurdles.

Lola had a fab day, too, with a shot put of 4.09m, clocking in at 2.35mins for her 800m and jumped 3.46m in the long jump.

In the under-15s age group they had Naideen, Jaymee, Jessie, Shannon and Nathan.

Naideen had a great day, with consistency in her shot put and was so close to her high jump PB with the best event of the day for her running a big PB in her hurdles at 13.02 secs.

Jaymee was performing well in both the discus and long jump, but she secured herself a place in the final of the 300m and bagged herself a silver medal in the final, coming in at 42.86 secs.
