Seven Gryffe pupils represented the school in the Scottish Schools Track and Field Championships in Grangemouth. At this national event, two athletes became national champions - Euan Gillham retaining the Group A Boys 5000m title won in 2014 and Rona Tytler becoming national champion in the Group B Girls 1500m Steeplechase.
This was a fitting end to both Euan and his sister Gwen's school Athletics career which included a large number of county and national wins.
Well done to all athletes, in particular Euan and Rona.
The fourth annual Gryffe HS Tennis championships saw 52 players descend on Strathgryffe Tennis and Squash Club. The day consisted of three tournaments - 15 players in Group A Boys tournament, 24 players in Group B Boys and 13 in Girls Tournament.
A highly entertaining day concluded with three finals as follows:
Group A Boys - Lee Wishart defeated Connor Thomson
2 sets to 0
Group B Boys - Christopher Torrance defeated Calum Barry
2 sets to 0
Girls - Molly Goulding defeated Chloe Duncan 2 sets to 1
Lee brought to an end his schools Tennis career with a fourth title in a row and only winner of this championship so far. Lee has been pivotal in the re-introduction of Tennis at the school, leading the boys team in the last four years in the Scottish Cup reaching as far as the last 8 two years ago. An excellent example to other players, of whom the boys will be looking to become the next name on the Boys trophy at next years event.
Well done to all entrants, particularly our winners Lee, Christopher and Molly.
