Falkirk Victoria Harriers entered 5 Girls teams in these championships which were combined with the Senior Championships.

The heats saw 4 teams compete in the 4 x 100 relays, 1 in the under 14 age group and 3 in the under 16 age group. Unfortunately the U14 B team had to withdraw.

The U14 A team of Kelsey Campbell, Anja Hanekom, Erin Meikle and Robyn Todd qualified for the finals in the 3rd fastest time. true to form the girls gave a thrilling race in the final, bringing the race right down to the line eventually finishing in Bronze Medal position.

The U16 girls A and C teams had to compete against each other in the first heat with the A team winning the heat with an automatic place in the final. this left the C team waiting to see if they would qualify in a fastest looser spot. Unfortuanately the B team were to be edged out of the final. In the next heat the B team ran but could only manage seventh place.

The U16 A team won the Championships in a time of 50.74s The team consisting of lead - Claire Anderson who gave the girls a cracking start, she passed on to Nicola Milne who maintained the great start from Claire, Nicola passed on to Leia Gladding who ran a fantastic bend to pass the batton to anchor runner Selina Henderson, who pulled away from the field to come home in a convincing win for the girls.

An excellent day of competition seen FVH fielding more teams in the competition thank they had done for some years and justly rewarded with Gold (u16) and Bronze(u13) podium positions. Well done to all the athletes who competed
