Ethan with his 1500m Gold Medal


Very well done to Ethan Carolan S3 on winning a Gold medal in the boys 1500m at the Glasgow Schools Athletics Championships at Scotstoun on Monday 5th June.

His gold medal performance finished off a good weekend as he was at the Miler Meet on Friday 2nd June ran 3000m an 9.26.96 which puts him 2nd in the Scottish rankings and 7th in the UK for this distance, braking the Giffnock North club record in the process!

Ethan will be joined at the Scottish Schools Athletics Championships on Saturday by fellow Shawlands Academy pupils Sophie Haldane, Rosie McKay and Lauren Paterson.



Russell Dickson of 2SB/2P5, a member at Newlands Tennis Club ended his under 12 age group tennis career as No.8 in the Scottish rankings and now moves into the under 14 age group. Notable achievements were reaching the semi-final in the West of Scotland Championships and also reaching the semi- final of the East Lothian Championship in North Berwick in July.   He also represented the West of Scotland County Team at Under 12 county week in Sunderland in June this year competing against teams from Cumbria, Northumberland and East, North and South Scotland.


In August he won the Under 14 boys singles in the Glasgow South Side Inter Club tennis tournament where he competed against players from all the tennis clubs in the south side. Russell hopes to continue his progress as he moves into the under 14 age group.
