We were delighted to welcome nine schools, in addition to Fettes Prep, to the Scottish IAPS Athletics Championships on Sunday. As we headed in for the morning set up, we had our eyes cast to the skies and fingers crossed for a fine day. As it turned out, the weather was extremely kind to us and conditions were perfect for running, with hazy sunshine and a cooling breeze.
The Fettes Prep team had considerable success during the afternoon and came away with twenty three gold, eleven silver and twelve bronze medals in the individual events. We were delighted to be the recipients of the Savills Relay Cup too, having won four gold medals and two silver medals in the relays.
Along the way, records were broken! Marianna is now the proud holder of the under 12 long jump record and the under 12 girls' team of Dashka, Emily, Izzy and Marianna ran like the wind to break the 4 x 100m relay record. The under 14 boys' team broke the 4 x 100 m relay record which has stood since 1991. Many congratulations go to Dara, Jaden, Xavax and Zac.
Thank you to all the visiting schools for such a fabulous day of athletics, to Savills for their sponsorship that adds so much to the fun of the day and to Jenny Fletcher and the entire Fettes Team for their brilliant organisation.
