Well done to all Juveniles who took part in the Dublin Indoor Championships.
The Dublin Indoor Track & Field Championships took place over the last two weekends. Unfortunately the bulk of the events took place outdoors on the track in Santry and Tallaght. But the weather was kind – for the most part there was no snow or rain, just the wind to contend with and some individuals were lucky to have their event indoors in Santry. We had 33 individual juveniles take part plus 9 relay teams. And we came away with seven Gold medals, five Silver medals, one Bronze medal and a silver for one of our relay teams. Plus a few very close fourths – these races were often the really exciting ones to watch.
It is early in the season and considering we trained all winter on grass this is a wonderful achievement. Thanks to all the coaches for their dedication and to the parents for their support. Thanks to all who helped out at these Championships. The number of Juveniles has increased exponentially and in order to facilitate the competition, clubs have to contribute helpers. Our parents have always been wiling to help at the various events. Medal winners were:
U9G Aoife Brown – 2nd 500m
U9B Thomas Bolton- 1st 500m
U11G Sadhbh Mohan – 1st 600m
U12 B Traian Rebegea – 2nd 600m
U11B Niall Hogan – 1st 600m
U13G Sarah O’Gorman – 2nd HJ
U14G Molly Brown – 1st 800m
U14G Aisling Mohan – 3rd 800m
