THERE were some top performances from East Lothian athletes at the Scottish Schools Track and Field competition at Grangemouth on June 17 and 18.

There were personal bests and medals aplenty in the middle distance events, with many also being awarded ‘standard’ badges.

Scottish Schools award these badges to runners who equal or better the ‘badge standard’ for their specific event.

Corey Campbell, representing George Heriots, won the 1,500m final, and finished fast with a time of 4:17.68.

Innes Wright, from North Berwick High School, was sixth in the same race, running 4:30.00.
