It was the turn of our juvenile athletes to head to Athlone for the National Juvenile Indoor Championships.

There were some really strong performances against the best in Ireland.

There was a bronze medal for Chelsea Olumba in the U13 60m, fourth and fifth places for Hannah Moriarty and Saoirse Fitzgerald in the U14 and U12 Girls High Jump respectively and Kate O'Connell reached the final of the U15 60m. Full details are below. If I get any photos, I will send them on.

U12 High Jump Saoirse Fitzgerald was fifth with a jump of 1.30. She jumped the same height as the second placed athlete but was placed fifth on countback.
U14 High Jump Hannah Moriarty was 4th with a jump of 1.45, again the same height as the second placed athlete but was fourth on countback.
U13 60m Chelsea Olumba made the final and ran a personal best to win the bronze medal.
U14 60m Christvie Lunganga finished third in her heat and narrowly missed out on a place in the final.
U15 60m Kate O’Connell reached her final and ran really well to finish 7th.
U16 60m Millie Reid put in a strong run in her heat.
