Giffnock North’s contestants in last Friday night’s GAA Glasgow Milers Meet at Hutchesons Grammar put in some outstanding performances and a fair clutch of personal bests.

Erin Wallace’s two minutes, 7.74 seconds 800 metre effort puts her top of this season’s UK Under 17 rankings, with a time that — were she old enough — would qualify her for the World Youth Games.

Another 800 metre thriller saw Giffnock’s Sarah Eunson put herself in the UK U17 top four for the year.

Coach Croy Thomson said: “Eunson wasn’t that far behind the winner, former Giffnock North athlete Maddie Murray, current Scottish Senior Cross Country Champion.”

Further PBs or near-PBs flew in from Lynn and Charlotte McKenna, Jack Bell, Andrew Robertson, Sofia Kirkpatrick, Rosie McKay, Murray Fotheringham, Ben Shaw, Nicolas Boyle, Kate Richardson, Hamish Armitt, Harry Nimmo, Jamie Sturrock and Andrew Clark.
