Today was Day 4 of the national juvenile track and field championships incorporating The “B” championships and some juvenile relays held in Tullamore amid heat and heavy rain. William Nugent wont mind. Competing in Shot and 80m he won silver and bronze respectively. Other good performances came from Ella Wall (7th in high jump and 8th in long jump) and Grace Delahunty (8th in high jump and 9th in 80m). We had three relay teams in action with all of them reaching the finals and coming close to medals. The boys under 14 (Danny Ring, Alex Cullen, Louie Raggett, William Nugent) were fifth. The under 15 girls ( Panel – Abbie O’Brien, Ella Delahunty, Orla Kenny, Amelie Foley and Balithin Holden) were fourth. The under 16 girls ( Panel – Abbie O’Brien<heat, Amelie Foley<final, Rachel Leahy, Tara McGuire, Jennifer Obah) were also fourth losing out by two hundreths of a second! Well done all. This brings the juvenile track and fiels season to a close. Now a rest for a few weeks before starting stamina building for next year.
