Scottish Disability Sports National Junior Athletics Championships
On Wednesday, 7th June, P7 pupil from Moffat Academy (Primary), Abi Johnson, took part in the Scottish Disability Sports National Junior Athletics Championships at Grangemouth. This was the first time that Abi had made it through to the Championships representing her region, and although she was a little nervous (and excited) about attending, she was rewarded by achieving 3 gold medals, in 60m event, Club Throw and Softball.
Five pupils from Moffat Secondary also represented Dumfries and Galloway at the Scottish Disability Sports: Athletics Championships. All competitors had a fantastic time with many notable successes. Jamie Lee Coyle (S1) won a gold medal for the 60m sprint and a sliver for the softball throw. Gordon Gardinor (S2) won a gold medal in the softball throw, and a bronze medal in the 100m. Shay Sullivan won a bronze medal in the 800m and silver in the 400m and Shania Scott won silver in the standing long jump and gold in the 60m race. Well done to all pupils!
