Provisional coaches reports for some of the age groups- more to follow in coming days

U13’s Report (report by Fergal O’Riagain)

The Indoors weekend got off to winning start with a double gold for the Boys A and Girls A Relay Teams.   Against strong competition, both teams comfortably won their heats and their final.   Well done to Sean O’Riagain, Donal Martin, David Purcell and Igor Gonzales and to Grace O’Connor, Annalie McMahon, Libby O’Gorman, Ruby Mullen and Joanna Dunne for their performances.   Both teams will now go onto represent the club at the National Competition in March.

Congratulations to 16 year old Sarah Healy who took centre stage at the prestigous AAI Indoor games in Abbotstown yesterday. She stormed to a sensational win (4.16.04) in the 1500m and in doing so has already ticked several boxes for the 2018 season:  her performance was a new PB by 3 secs, she took down the U18/U20 Indoor records (previously held by Ciara Mageean) and was comfortably inside the qualifying standards for both the European Youths and World U20 championships later this year. Well done to Sarah on her outstanding run and new Irish indoor records.

On Friday evening our Juvenile relay squads were taking part in the first of four sessions in the Dublin Even Age group Championships. We took away two titles, several other top 3’s and finalists and all in all and enjoyable evening had by athletes and parents. Provisional results as follows:

Under 10 boys silver

Under 12 girls silver

Under 12 boys gold

Under 14 girls missed final by half a second 

Under 14 boys two teams qualified. Gold and sixth. 

Well done to all involved and next up is the Dublin Uneven Age group relays this Friday 9th Feb.
