Indoor Relay National Championships 2012

Comments Off on Indoor Relay National Championships 2012 Uncategorized

We had 2 teams (Girls U12/ Boys U13) competing in last Sunday’s indoor National championships at Nenagh.

It was their first experience of the exciting atmosphere that accompanies this annual event and the standard of relay running on the day was exceptional.

Both of our teams performed very well and were close to running their PB’s. However neither team progressed to the finals but they should be proud of the effort and endeavour over the last few weeks in preparing for these events.

Our congratulations go out to St Mary’s AC and Menapians who won the girls/ boys races respectively. In the case of St Mary’s, they won in style setting a new indoor National record.

We would also like to thank the parents for their time and effort and valued support on the day.

Once again Tallaght AC played host to the Indoor championships and there was a healthy representation from all the clubs for the Sprint and Hurdles events.

Most of the events involved heats and semi finals and our athletes did us proud.

Under 9’s: Congratulations to Isabel O’Brien who brought home a silver medal and also to Sarah O’Brien who competed in this race. In the boys race Doug Walshe (4th), Neal McCarvill (7th) and Fionn Boyd (6th) all made the final. Well done to our U 9’s. This was their first event of the year and it was a great effort.
