Shay McEvoy continued his good form with a splendid run in the 3000m under 18 at the national juvenile track and field finals in Tullamore today. His time was an excellent 8.51.27 – a result of consistant training throughout the season. There were many other good performances from our athletes at these finals – particularly from our distance runners. James Kearney won bronze in the under 18 steeplechase. Kevin Burns and Luke Whelan were 9th and 14th respectively in the 3000m final under 18. In the 3000m under 17 Cathal Kearney placed 10th and John Muldowney was 12th. Other high achievers at the weekend were Danny Ring and Alex Cullen (7th) in the under 13 hurdles, Amelie Foley 80m (6th) and Harry Boyle long jump (8th) – both under 14.
