FORMER Warrington Athletics Club member Carys McAulay has her eyes on selection for this summer’s Commonwealth Games.

She looks set to challenge for a place in the Scotland team for the Games in Birmingham after a personal-best display at the World Athletics Continental Tour Bronze Meeting on Saturday.

McAulay, who is now with Trafford Athletics Club, ran a new best 400m time of 52.86secs in Geneva to put her third in the Scottish rankings for this year – only Olympians Zoey Clark and Nicole Yeargin have run faster times – and 12th in the UK rankings.

Closer to home at the Northern under 15-under 17 Inter County Championships, current Warrington member Lewis Shaw lived up to his billing as the UK’s fastest 80m hurdles runner in his age group.

Running for Merseyside during Thursday’s meet, he claimed victory in his under 15s race in 11.38secs.

Three of his clubmates were competing for Cheshire at the same meet in York, with Caleb Adelani finishing fourth in the 100m (12.21secs) and third in the 200m (24.63secs) while also forming part of the 4x100m team that finished seventh.

Esme Heavey ran a new personal best 800m time of 2mins 21.45secs in the 800m while Ben Pucill came 10th over 1,500m in a time of 4mins 28.45secs.

In the match as a whole, Cheshire finished third on 258 points behind the north east (280) and winners Yorkshire (335).

Meanwhile, Lisa Halliday was the only Warrington member competing at Trafford Athletics Club’s Sprints Grand Prix last week.

She ran the 400m hurdles, finishing fourth in a time of 68.26secs.
