MSB juvenile members continue to make a strong impact on the athletics scene in Dublin.

The Leagues were run over the first 4 Saturdays in April and there were a variety of events each day for all athletes. We had between 35 and 45 children participating each Saturday. There were points for the top six in each event and at the end of all four Leagues the top six children in each age categories get a lovely plaque or trophy. The following MSB athletes were in the top six in their age groups:

U10Boys     Thomas Bolton                  1st

                    Ethan Monahan               4th

                    Lucas Girigan                  6th

U9/10/11 Team Competition and Relays

For these competitions on Saturday 30th May we entered 40 pairings for the Team Competition and 8 relay teams.

But they still brought home 3 x gold, 4 x silver and 2 x bronze in the Team competitions and 1st  x U10 Boys and 2nd x U11 Boys relays. The following were the medal winners:

Report from Dublin Juvenile Championships - 4x100m Relays U9, U10 and U11 - Morton Stadium Santry - Saturday 31st May 2014

MSB's youngest Juvenile athletes turned out in great numbers for a terrific day of relay championships over the Bank Holiday weekend in the scorching sunshine. Our Under 9 Girls (Aoife Sheridan, Aisling O'Grady, Aoibhinn McGuinness and Molly Olyphant) came third in their heat and overall finished in 4th place in the final, just outside the medals. Their sprinting was superb and their baton exchanges were extremely smooth - well done girls.


In the U10 Girls we had two teams, both of which competed very well but unfortunately neither qualified for the final. The teams comprised Alison Callinan, Aoife Keane, Zoe Coquart and Rachel Glynn on one team and Ruth Linnane, Ella Nagle, Gara Williams and Tara Shields on the other.


In the U10 Boys we also had two teams (Team 1: Oisin Tebite, Adam Brennan, Ben O'Neill and Louie Woodger; Team 2: David Onwumereh, Oisin O'Shaughnessy, Adam Nagle and Donal Fitzmaurice). Team 1 brought home the gold medals after running lighting fast with the slickest baton exchanges possible in what was a very competitive age group. Well done to both teams as the second team only narrowly missed out on qualifying for the final. 

Our U11 Girls team comprising Sadhbh Mohan, Vivianna McCann, Olivia Spring and Aoife Brown (running up from U10) ran superbly to finish second in their heat and qualify for the final where they secured a very creditable 5th place.  


Our U11 Boys team ran superbly to win their heat (Neil Hogan, Killian Hegarty, James Bolton and Nkemjika Onwumereh) but narrowly missed out on the medals in their final, finishing 4th, barely behind the third place team.


So overall some superb team running from our young juveniles - well done to all.
