Our annual Christmas party and presentation night took place on Friday last at the Club House, we had a fine turnout of athletes and parents. With 11 sets of team Cross Country Medals to present and a number of Individual Munster and All Ireland Medals it was clear to see that the Club had a very busy and successful year at Juvenile level making them the 3rd best Club in the County at the “A” Cross Country Championships for 2012. It was also great to see so many achievements in 2012 by our Senior Ladies where they won medals at all events throughout the season making them the 5th best Club overall – well done to all our Senior and Juvenile Athletes and best of luck for the 2013 season. The ‘Athlete Of The Year’ Award for 2012 went to Niamh Ryan who had a very successful year at both Track & Field and Cross Country Events; she won indoor and outdoor County Titles in both Long Jump & 600m and also won medals in both events at Munster & All Ireland level. Niamh also won a number of medals in Cross Country at both County and Munster level and represented Munster in the National Cross Country Finals. ‘Most Improved Athlete’ for 2012 went to Rachel Butler – Rachel won medals in Track & Field early in the season but her success really kicked in during the Cross Country Season when she claimed the U11 County Title; she went on from there to win individual medals in both U11 & U12 Munster Championships and also in both ages at the National Championships where she also won Provincial Team Medals. We congratulate both girls on their fantastic achievements and wish them both a successful season in 2013. Finally we would like to thank all those who donated confectionery on the night and who helped out in any way to make the night such a success. We wish you all a Happy New Year and hope that 2013 will be another successful one for Moyne AC.
