Crawforddyke Primary wins Cross Country contest

Pupils from Crawforddyke Primary School won the top primary school prize at Law and District Amateur Athletics Club's annual Clydesdale Schools Cross Country at Moor Park, Carluke.

Lying snow and freezing temperatures did not seem to hinder the young people, who performed very n-icely indeed – despite the freezing temperatures they also had to tackle.

The primary school prizes went to Crawforddyke PS 1st, St Athanasius PS 2nd, Biggar PS 3rd, while secondary school honours went to Biggar HS 1st, Our Lady's HS 2nd and Lanark Grammar 3rd. Walston took the small Primary Schools prize.

For the winners of each school year group, pick up a copy of this week's Carluke and Lanark Gazette which is in the shops now.

Law and District AAC also recently held their Annual Presentation Dance at Motherwell Football Club's Centenary Suite.

Club Captain Christopher Watson presented Shine Awards to the younger athletes, before ex-club president Pat Kelly, presented athletes with 2010 Club Awards.

All of the award winners are also carried in this week's Gazette.
