Highland fling for Borders athletes

The Borders pro running season may be over but local athletes are still going strong further afield.

At the Crieff Highland Gathering on Sunday a cracking final in the youths 90m saw Jed-Forest AC’s Brodie Cowan edge the win over club mate Aiden Bambrick while Zoe Johnstone, also Jed, took the honours in the youths 200m.

In the Invitation Sprint there was a Borders 1, 2, 3, with Mhari Henderson (TLJT), Martha Douglas (Jed) and Amy Cardwell (Jed) filling the respective places.

Selkirk’s Geoff Keen took first place in the 200m Open.
