CHAMPIONSHIP and club records were sent tumbling by Pitreavie AAC athletes as they claimed a glut of national medals at the weekend.

Under-13, under-15 and under-20 members of the club were in action at the Scottish Athletics National Age Group Indoor Championships, which were held at Glasgow's Emirates Arena on Saturday and Sunday, and they produced a number of impressive performances.

Leading the Pitreavie medal rush was under-20 competitor Stephen Mackenzie, who continued his fine indoor season with two medals, the first of which was gold in colour in the long jump.

His leap of 7.35 metres set a new championship record, and he followed that by breaking a triple jump club record he had set a week earlier to win silver with a distance of 14.66m, as well as running a season's best 7.27 seconds over 60 metres.

In the under-15 age group, Rebecca Grieve smashed a championship and club record to claim the under-15 300m title in 40.75, before breaking a Pitreavie best time – set in 1974 – in the long jump (5.35m) to win a silver medal.

Another of the club's under-20 athletes, Billy Doyle, was in terrific form in the 400m as he equalled the club's previous best time (48.60), which has stood since 1980, to win gold, while under-15 youngster Fergus Macgilp was in equally good form. He won silver in the 300m with a club record time of 38.36, before bagging a second medal in the long jump with an effort of 5.81m that beat the previous club best set in 1987, while Dylan Thomson won silver in the under-20 pole vault (4.28m).

Bronze medals were won by Sophie Wallwork in the under-15 200m (26.05), beating a club record created in 2002; Cameron Keelan in the under-20 60m hurdles (8.78, PB); Bethany McAndrew in the women's event (9.07); Arian Baillie in the under-13 1500m (5:16.40, PB); Mica McCloud, who ran a PB in the semi-final of 27.90, in the under-13 200m (28.04); Sarah Coutts in the under-20 800m (2:17.38, an indoor PB); and Ryan Woods in the under-20 high jump (1.93m, indoor PB).

In addition, Alistair Moriarty claimed a new indoor PB time of 23.40 on his way to the under-20 200m final, where he placed sixth, while Calum R Hall (under-13 60m hurdles, 11.91), Sophie Wallwork (under-15 60m, 8.21), Erin Macfarlane (under-15 1500m, 5:15.49), Lily Simon (under-13 800m, 2:29.74) and Caleb McLeod (under-15 800m, 2:15.97) also reached finals and secured new best times.

Several more athletes, including Jamie Lee Adie, Holly Gordon, Harris Mackie, Laurie Hunter, Niamh Stephen, Kay Turner, Sinead Steel, Sarah Johnston, Cameron Keelan and Skye Marshall, set new individual bests throughout the competition, as did Ewan Dyer.

He was selected to compete in an invitational senior men's 800m race and, after running a fine race to keep pace with British international Neil Gourlay most of the way, he claimed second place with an indoor PB of 1:52.47.
