WITH only the Morebattle meeting to go, the Border Athletics (BA) League is heading for an exciting climax.

Rory Anderson has retaken top spot – after impressive running at Tweedbank – from fellow Hawick resident Ross Weir. And, in recent weeks, Bruce Scott, runner and coach at TLJT, has been racing up the table with some excellent finishes.

Winner- Rory Anderson, Hawick

With plenty of points still available at Morebattle this weekend, the league is certain to add extra excitement to a popular meeting.

With no major change in the top three in the Youths/Junior League, it is looking positive for Darcy Graham of Hawick, and a win at Morebattle could ensure his first place league position. The ever-improving Ruaridh Britton (Moorfoot) failed to get any points at Tweedbank, but has not given up the chase for the top spot.

The race for second and third is set to be pretty dramatic. Ruaridh, on 14, is followed closely by Josh Dougal, Kyle Potts (both TLJT) and Fraser Wardhaugh (Gala Harriers) on 12 points.

There are also places to be had in the season finale, the BSLT Classic, to be held at Tweedbank Sports Complex on Sunday, August 28.
