Sophie’s the choice for EoS

A JEDBURGH athlete has been selected to compete for the East of Scotland in an under-18 inter-regional match at Wishaw Stadium next Saturday.

Sophie Elder, 17, who runs for Lasswade AC, will be competing in the 300m against seven teams from Scotland.

This is a great achievement for the local youngster, who has already been selected for Team Edinburgh this season, and has improved on her PBs for both the 300m and 400m throughout the summer.
