West of Scotland, with a prominent input from FVO youngsters, won the JIA Relays at Culbin yesterday. There was a 1-2-3 in the boys race, with Peter Molloy, James Hammond and Tom Lines (ECKO) taking top spot ahead of Louis McMillan (ECKO), Jamie Goddard and Callum Hunter (ECKO) and Ellis Hunter (ECKO), Robin Purves and Ben Parkinson.
The West effort was aided by the fact that six of the North teams, including some of those with their stronger runners, and all four East teams, mispunched. Both Peter Molloy and James Hammond had the fastest time on their leg.
The girls relay was won by North, but West took the next three places to cement the victory. Grace Molloy anchored the second placed team along with Zoe Graham and Iris MacMillan (both ECKO) and Lizzie Stansfield and Lucy Hensman partnered CLYDE's Lindsay Robertson to 4th place. Lizzie Stansfield was quickest on the lead leg.
