ARBROATH and District Athletic Club members had a busy weekend at the Kelvin Hall.

The Glasgow Indoor Arena was host to the Scottish Combined Events Championships, the Under-13 Superteams, National Indoor 3,000m Championships and Masters Championships with ADAC being represented in each event.

In his first year in the under-17 age group, Jack Garrigan, who is also ranked number one under-17 high jumper in Scotland, came home with the Combined Events silver medal.

Gold came back to Arbroath following a great run by Becky Dunphy in the 3,000m and Stuart Campbell in the Masters 1,500m. Ellen Robertson did an excellent job in her first year as an under-17 woman in their Combined Events and the Under-13 Superteam girls showed they were a force to be reckoned with.
