SAIL 2019-20 MATCH 3
12th January 2020
Emirates Arena, Glasgow
The final Scottish Athletics Indoor League (SAIL) match took place on the first weekend of the new year with a number of Dunfermline Track and Field Club teams in with a chance of making the final in the spring.
After a hectic day there were two DTFC teams that made the final . The U11 boys swept the board winning their league with Bradley Moffat winning the 60m, finishing solidly mid table in the 600m and and finishing second in the standing long jump. He was supported by Gregor Fraser and Charlie Hunter who added vital points. The U15 girls were also comfortable qualifiers with Shayna Asamoah and Darcie Black winning all the short sprint events with Shayna running an impressive 27.25secs in the 200m. In the field the girls were just as dominate with Ellie Candlish taking the high jump and Darcie the long jump.
A number of other DTFC teams came very close to qualifying with the U11 girls and U15 boys finishing fourth (the top three teams qualified) whilst the U17 girls finished 5th and the U13 girls 6th.
There were some excellent performances from the DTFC athletes throughout the age groups. In the U11 girls the pick was the 60m Lottie Thomas ran to finish 5th in 9.94secs and solid 600m runs from Macey Wainwright and Freya Kiernan. The U17 girls saw Rebecca Grieve dominate the sprints with a 60m of 7.99secs and produce a stunning 40.56 secs for the 300m to win all three. In their field events Hayley Penman in the shot putt and Maia Helm in the high jump added vital points but the team came up just short. The U13 girls were also just missed out with their highlights an excellent 60m by Sophie Thomas in 8.94secs to finish second and a 5th place for Sarah Kane in the 200m. The team sadly fell short in the field events which cost them dearly. The U15 boys were solid but couldn’t quite get the results they required with the field events proving more fruitful for them .Callum Newton netted third spot with a 4.80m long jump and Adom Akouko produced an excellent 9.51m shot putt to finish second.
The two teams that qualified now make their way to the final back at the Emirates on 8th March hoping for indoor success.
