National Juvenile Indoors Day 3

Comments Off on National Juvenile Indoors Day 3 Uncategorized

Day 3 of the National Indoors took place yesterday in AIT. Those who traveled witnessed some outstanding performances across a host of events with our athletes enjoying the competition at this level (many for the first time).

Libby O’Gorman, Peter Walshe and Sean O’Riagain all performed well in the U12 Long Jump with Sean also running in the 600m. Robert O’Brien, Shane Van Zuydam and Killian Curran were competing in the Boys U13 Long Jump and again these three athletes will have enjoyed the overall experience.

Well done to all six athletes on representing the club yesterday and they were all part of the relay teams that made the finals the previous week.

Robyn O’Brien (U18 200m) and Jack Moraghan (U17 800m) both narrowly missed out on qualification for the finals but once again put in strong performances. Well done to both athletes.
