PITREAVIE AAC'S Fergus MacGilp enjoyed a golden treble as he led a weekend of medals and records at Scottish Athletics' East District Championships.

The under-15 athlete surged to the top of the podium in the 80 metres hurdles, 300m and long jump – with a championship best performance – as the club enjoyed a tremendous meet at Grangemouth Stadium.

After posting a time of 12.58 seconds to win his hurdles event, finishing ahead of Dunfermline Track and Field Club's James Cuthbert, MacGilp crossed the line in a time of 38.64 to win the 300m before his distance of 6.01m – the first time he'd broken the 6m barrier – gave him the long jump title, as well as a new club record that had stood since 1997.

Joining him in the medals in the under-15 age group was Caleb McLeod, who took long jump bronze with a big PB of 5.10m, while Sophie Wallwork and Rebecca Grieve battled it out for medals in the 200m and 300m.

In the latter event, they both broke the championship record, with Wallwork (39.65) taking gold as Grieve (40.18) had to settle for silver, before they both placed in the same positions in the 200m in times of 25.38 and 25.47 respectively. Wallwork's 300m performance was not only a club record but took her top of the UK rankings and into the Po10 (Power of 10) top 10 standard.

Mica McCloud was in fine form in the under-13 category, claiming a 100m and 200m sprint double in 13.17 and 27.05 respectively, with her 100m time also taking her to the top of the Scottish rankings.

Training partner Harris Mackie also enjoyed a successful day, winning 100m bronze (13.32) and 200m silver (27.49), while another double gold was secured by Olivia Knowles, who posted winning distances of 11.27m in the javelin and 14.12m in the discus.

The under-13 girls' 800m saw another Pitreavie one-two, as Lily Simon (2:26.21) took gold ahead of runner-up Katie Thomson (2:31.21), before the former also went on to win bronze in the high jump (1.36m). Laurie Hunter also earned a bronze medal in the long jump.

Isla Steel led the under-17 medal haul in three events, taking javelin gold (34.12m), and hurdles (12.35) and long jump (5.24m) silver.

A personal best of 11.01, which also took him to the top of the Scottish rankings, gave Sean Stewart 100m gold, while training partner Ben Knowles grabbed 400m bronze in 52.10.

In the 800m, it was silver for Sarah Coutts and Ruaraidh Elder with 2:14.90 and a PB of 2:02.52 respectively, while in the field, Beth Aitken took silver in the triple jump with 9.98m.

At under-20 and senior level, an open graded format saw athletes from both the East and the West compete against each other and Billy Doyle, chosen to race for Scotland in the 4x400m at the Loughborough International, secured the best 400m performance of the day with a PB of 48.10.
