CS&S Athletics 2016/17

Posted on: Tuesday, June 06, 2017

Despite the gloomy weather forecast of heavy rain for Monday 5th June 2017; Pinkie Playing Fields, Musselburgh, was again home to the annual Company Section & Seniors Athletics event.  19 Boys from six Companies battled it out to become individual age group champions and win the overall Battalion Athletics Cup.

The competition format was a heptathlon, consisting of 1) Long Jump, 2) Shot Putt, 3) 100m, 4) 200/400, 5) 800/1500m.  In addition, there was a 4 x 100m Company relay race.

Once events got underway, you could see that some Boys had previously participated in athletics and others less so, but who nevertheless gave it a right go.

Special high 5’s to the individual age group champs, Finlay Porteous, 65th Edinburgh, and Cameron Dickson & Mark Robertson, 10th Leith.  The overall Company Champions on the night and the recipients of the Battalion Athletics Cup were a worthy 65th Edinburgh Company. Well done to all the Boys for their undoubted endeavours.

Thank you to all the leaders who assisted with officiating on the night, with a special mention to Sandy Mitchell, 1st Dunbar, who readily accepted and coped with the ‘pressure’ of being the official scorer.
