Over the summer months two Watson’s pupils, Scott Hughson (S6) and Toby Harris (S5) represented Scotland at Athletics and had some success.
Competing as part of the Scottish Schools Athletics team at the SIAB International British Schools 2007 Meeting, Scott won the Under 17 men’s 400m.
This weekend at the Bank of Scotland National Age Group Scottish Championships both of our athletes performed magnificently.
Scott won the Under 17 men’s 400m sprint, making him the 2007 National Champion, while Toby won the Under 17 men’s 400m Hurdles race and came second in the 100m Hurdles final for the same age category, earning a silver medal.
Both will travel to Birmingham on 1 September to compete in the UK Athletics Final with the City of Edinburgh Athletics Club, and we hope their winning ways continue.
