Members of the club were out in force at the event, held in Linwood, in what was the final competition of the summer outdoor track season.

Several teams were fielded by Pitreavie and that paid off in style as they came home with three gold medals, one silver and one bronze.

In the under-13 girls' events, Sophia Mackie, Christy Cameron, Jenna Young and Mia Fairweather placed first in the 4x100 metres with a time of 54.19 seconds, ahead of Kilmarnock H&AC, while the under-15 quartet of Anastasia Cotorobai, Katie Thomson, Laurie Hunter and Holly Ovens followed in the 4x300m.

Their time of 2:59.82 saw them finish ahead of Dunfermline Track and Field's Shayna Asamoah, Sophie Thomas, Ellie Candlish and Kirstin Penman, who finished in 3:01.28.

Another under-15s team – Katie Sandilands, Ariane Baillie and Lily Smith – added a third gold in impressive style in the 3x800m, clocking a time of 7:08.43 to finish convincingly ahead of Edinburgh AC (7:24.10) and Kilbarchan AAC ( 7:25.48) in a field of 24 competitive squads.

The mixed 4x400m relay saw further success for under-17 athletes Evan Wilson, Adom Akuoko, Cameron Johnston and Caleb McLeod, who took home silver medals with a time of 3:43.82, which saw them finish between Airdrie Harriers 'A' (3:41.44) and Cumbernauld AAC (3:44.52), and a successful championship was rounded off in the senior women's 4x100m.
