Munster Juveniles U14 - U19 Track & Field Championships 2017

Munster Juveniles U14 - U19 Track & Field Championships.

What a fabulous weekend for our St. Brendan's AC club athletes to be competing on at CIT track in Cork.

Day 1 saw Rebecca Falvey, Lauren O' Grady & Aaron Malik taking part. Rebecca was taking part in her inaugural Munster competition in both the U15 Long Jump & 200m. A great display in both events by this very promising young athlete. We look forward to see what the future will bring her. 

Lauren u18 was 1st in the discus competition & placed 3rd in the shot. Aaron (U17) was 4th in the javelin also qualifying for the All-Ireland competition in July.

Day 2 saw Lauren & Aaron compete again with Darragh Courtney & Eimear O' Sullivan joining them. Lauren was up first in the hammer placing 3rd, she later placed 4th in the shot putt thus qualifying for All-Ireland's in each of her events. Aaron was 3rd in both the discus & 300m hurdles also qualifying for all of his events at All-Irelands. 

Darragh (U17) was 1st in the 300m hurdles in a well run but close race. 
Eimear (U15) also appearing at her first Munster competition came 4th in her 1500m which meant she also qualified for the National finals.

Congratulations to all athletes involved & well done on the great displays of athleticism over the weekend. Looking forward to the National finals which will take place in Tullamore, July 8th, 9th & 16th. Well done everyone.
