North Ayrshire Athletics Club’s under 15s team have been crowned the new national champions of the 4x300m relay, breaking the Scottish record.

Competing in the National Relay Championships in Grangemouth on Saturday, September 10, the team ran the race in two minutes and 56.59 seconds, making them the sixth fastest team in the UK.

Consisting of local runners Naideen, Jaymee, Jessie & Shannon, the team also secured the silver medal and a new personal best in the 4x100m race.

President Kirsteen Brown said: “These girls have worked so hard this season both on and off the track. The team ethos of these girls and the real desire to work hard for each was evident and they absolutely deserved the recognition at a national level.

“We are still a relatively young and small club in comparison to others, but we are showing what a talented team we have here at NAAC.”
