Across the three matches, the U17 boys' team were placed third overall and they now qualify for the indoor series finals to be held at the Emirates on March 16.

The U17 girls team was eighth of the 23 teams competing, with the girls performing well and achieving a raft of personal bests, with Amirah Hassan taking fifth place in the hurdles.

Both the U15 girls and boys teams were also placed eighth overall, with strong performances including that of Lexy Kenhard, who was third in both the hurdles and high jump and recorded a new PB of 1.50 metres in the latter, and Robert Court and Finlay Fleming, who were placed second and third respectively in the shot put.

Meanwhile, the under-13 boys' team finished fourth overall, narrowly missing out on qualification for the finals.

Notable performances in the U13 team came from Alex Brown, who was second in both the long jump and 200m, the latter in a new best time, and Ewan McCartney, whose PB of 7.09 metres earned him second place in the shot put.

The U13 girls team was 11th of the 21 competing teams, with Holly Kenhard gaining a new PB in the 60m and both Molly Ferguson and Lilly Boultby also recording new best times.

For the U11 teams, Lewis Cameron finished in fourth place in the boys' long jump in a new best distance, and he also set a new best time in the 600m race, in the girls' team Emily Ferguson set a new PB in the 60m sprint with Scarlett Jones and Archie Bell both making their debuts at the Emirates.

On February 16, meanwhile, three Helensburgh spring teams competed in the Scottish indoor relays, at U13 boys' level and U15 and U17 girls, against some of the best young sprinters in the country.

All the Helensburgh teams performed well but were edged out of qualifying places for the finals.

The warmth and dry conditions of the indoor match contrasted with the recent Renfrewshire District Road race, with Iona Wilson and Jenny Scott gaining the highest HAAC placings of the day with fourth and sixth respectively in the U15 girls' race.
