The time was only 0.2 seconds outside the competition record and was the fastest time recorded of any school relay team this year.

The school achieved back-to-back success after winning the under-17 4x100 metre relay last year.

Dingwall faculty head of health and nutrition Morris Dillon said it was an phenomenal achivement by the sixth year pupils who all compete for the Inverness Harriers.

"They recorded the fastest time in qualifying and were just 0.2 seconds off the 1983 record.

"It was one of the fastest times in Championship history.

"It was the first time all four boys have ran with each other and the strongest team that the school has ever had."
