All Ireland Juvenile Track & Field Championships

Dylan McLoughlin, Sean Burke and Jack Hickey were the club representatives at the All Ireland Juvenile Track & Field Championships held in Tullamore at the weekend.  It is great to see the club represented in such a prestigious competition where the top athletes from around the country have qualified to compete.  Dylan was the first into action and he ran a steady and controlled race in the Boys U/16 800mts to finish a very creditable 12th overall in a time of 2.15.58.  Next up was Sean who competed in the U/17 Javelin and High Jump.  On a day of mixed fortunes for Sean he was extremely happy with his Javelin placing of 9th with a throw of 28.16 but never got the run up for the High Jump correct and eventually finished 5th.   Jack was in action in the Boys U/17 400mts and powered around the track to finish 6th overall in 55.03 less than half a second from a personal best.  Well done to all three athletes firstly on the achievement of reaching this level of competition and secondly on their performances against the best in the country.
