A DUNFERMLINE Track and Field Club relay team is on the run to sharing the stage with Europe's best after reaching a national championship finals.

Members of the club's under-13 girls' A squad will take their place at Glasgow's Emirates Arena this weekend during the European Athletics Indoor Championships next month after they qualified for the National Indoor Relay Championships final on Saturday.

That will take place on tomorrow (Friday) – on the opening day of the European Championships – and they were the only Dunfermline Track and Field Club team to make it through the qualifying event.

After making it through the first round of the 4x200 metres comfortably – posting a second-fastest overall time of 1:58.82 – a storming last leg by Shayna Asamoah saw the team, also consisting of Aaliyah Adebisi, Sarah Kane and Sophie Thomas, win through in 1:59.17.

There were close calls for the club's other teams, including the much younger and less experienced under-13 B squad, who posted a fine time of 2:14.12 in their heat to gain valuable experience ahead of next year's event.

The under-15 girls won their heat in 2:00.05 but failed to advance from the semi-finals, despite a sub-two minute run of 1:59.84, while it was also a tough task for a young boys' under-13 team.

With only three heats, and just the winning team in each and the three fastest losers advancing, they acquitted themselves well and finished third in their heat.

Meanwhile, also at the Emirates, the annual Scottish Athletics Indoor Under-12 Superteams event took place, attracting more than 500 athletes in 45 boys' and 64 girls' teams.

Four teams from the club were entered and the girls' A team finished eighth overall, helped by a strong track performance that saw Sophie Thomas finish fifth overall in the 60m, and the supporting girls place 13th and 19th.

An excellent fourth place in the 4x200m relay handed them 97 points towards their final total but, despite Thomas, Kasey Cook and Sarah Kane all producing solid long jumps, a disappointing shot putt saw them fall short of a podium place.

Eva Gasowska was the highest points scorer for the girls' B team, who enjoyed a solid competition, while both boys' teams finished comfortably in mid-table.

The individual top boys' and girls' scorers were Charlie Potter (235.5) and Sarah Kane (247.5).
