County Juvenile “B” Track & Field

15 athletes travelled to Templemore on Sunday to take part in the County Juvenile “B” Track and Field Championships and they came away with a great haul of 14 County Championship medals in addition to numerous relay medals.  Three County Champions emerged on the day with Amy Reddan striking gold in the Girls U/11 500mts, Cormac Burke winning the Boys U/11 Turbo Javelin and Jack Flanagan jumping to gold in the Boys U/10 Long Jump.  Amy and Jack showed great versatility by also winning silver medals in the Girls U/11 Long Jump and the Boys U/10 300mts.  Louise Hickey came home with two silver medals having finished second in both the Girls U/12 80mts and 600mts.  Also winning silver were Adam Spillane Leane in the Boys U/10 60mts, Aaron McLoughlin in the Boys U/12 600mts and Liam Ryan in the Boys U/12 Turbo Javelin.  Adam also secured a bronze medal in the Boys U/10 300mts, a position Blathnaid Lloyd occupied in the Girls U/10 300mts following a great finishing sprint over the final yards.  Adam Phelan and Sarah McGinley also won bronze medals with Adam third in the boys U/10 60mts and Sarah third in the Girls U/9 Turbo Javelin.  For the record Sean Boland finished just out of the medals in the Boys U/9 Long Jump with a fourth place finish, just .04cm from the bronze.  Aaron McLoughlin also finished 4th in the Boys U/12 Long Jump with Liam Ryan sixth in the same competition.  Frank Doyle finished 6th in the Boys U/10 Turbo Javelin with Blathnaid Lloyd also finishing sixth in her U/10 Long Jump while Sarah McGinley also secured a sixth place in the Girls U/9 Long Jump while Isabella Jones finished 9th in the same competition.  Jake Bowe and Jack Reddan also performed well but were out of the medals on this occasion but there is certainly more to come from these two boys.  The relay events are run as a mixed relay where all competitors are picked on teams irrespective of what club they are from and most of our athletes also secured either gold, silver or bronze in these races.  Congratulations and well done to all of the athletes on Sunday and to the parents and mentors who supported the children in Templemore.
