In the teams, the U11 girls finished second – Arianna Bennett, Erin Donaldson and Isla Hedges, U13 girls fifth – Skye Robertson, Aine McAtarsney and Megan Blair, U15/U17 girls third – Emily Christie, Isabella Ogg and Katie Hedges, U20/senior women second – Olivia Vareille, Fiona Matheson, Niamh Brown and Eilidh McCallum.

The U13 boys were fourth – Thomas Mitchell, Ben Upfold and Blair Anderson, the U15 boys third – Hamish Hunter, Cahal McAtarsney and Daniel Alexander and the U20/senior men eighth – Euan Martin, Alan Purves, Gary McKenna, Michael McQuade, Grant Matheson and Jamie McAldine.

The results from that meet added to those from Kirkcaldy in October mean the Harriers currently have two teams second (U15/U17 girls and the U20/senior women) and two teams third (U11 girls and U13 girls).

The final league match will take place in Bathgate in January, when the male teams will look to better their current placings and the female teams will try to improve their positions in order to produce similar results to last year’s teams, placing first to fourth.
