Law not satisfied with best ever start


By Staff Reporter


Kirsty Law’s record-breaking start to her season continued at an international throws meeting at Halle in Germany where the 11-time Scottish discus champion took fifth place with 55.19m.

For the first time, she has launched all of her first six efforts of the season beyond 55 metres.

The only other time she had has so many throws so far, she made the final of the Commonwealth Games.

“In some ways it wasn’t my day in Halle and although I really enjoyed the competition, my throwing just wouldn’t come together,” she said.

“On the other hand, I would have been happy with this last year so I’ll need to take the positives.

“What I now need to do is to use this as a platform to build further for the biggest competitions which come later in the season.”

Emma Pedrana, making her last appearance for Culloden Academy, won the British Legion Trophy for the best girl’s performance at Thursday’s North of Scotland Schools championships.

Her winning time of 12.38s in the over-17 girls’ 100m has only been bettered once so far this year. Pedrana then consolidated her claim with victory in the 200m in 25.93 seconds.

She was back in action again for the Harriers in Sunday’s RAM track and field league, clearly winning the women’s 200m in 26 seconds. Ruairidh Munro matched this with victory in the men’s event with 23.9 seconds.

Matty Papp was the best of three local athletes in the pole vault where he cleared three metres. In the under-17 age group, James Rollo won the shot while Euan Rollo came out on top in the 3000m.

Angus Davren, Ruairidh Munro, Alexander MacKay and Finlay Rollo were 0.2s outside the championship record as they retained their Scottish Schools relay title for Dingwall Academy in the over-17 4x100m.

Fortrose’s Stroma Fraser took silver in the under-14 group at the Scottish Schools pentathlon championships.
