Sprinting Splits

Mica and Aaliyah McLoud (S4) have been racing their hearts out

Our very own sprinting twins, Mica and Aaliyah McLoud have been having a busy athletics season with both girls training hard and improving on their personal bests. On Saturday, 22 January, the sisters participated in the Scottish National Indoor Athletics Championships for the first time in the U17s category and truly made their mark. After racing their hearts out in the heats, both girls made it to the finals in 60m and 300m respectively with Mica coming in fifth with a personal best of 8:10 and Aaliyah taking the bronze position with an indoor best of 41.48.

The girls then went on to participate in the Scottish Schools Indoor Championship on Thursday, 10 February and once again bested themselves by split seconds with Mica achieving a new personal best of 8:07 and Aaliyah grabbing the Gold with a time of 41:40.

Congratulations girls! We are so proud of your achievements and will continue to root for you, always.
