National Indoors

Yet another great weekend for GAC athletes. We had 5 teams in the National relays on Sat. of which 4 made the finals.......

while the 5th, moving a little too quickly, unfortunately exchanged just outside the zone. Our U16 boys, Josh Pyper, Noah Daly, Louis Lalor & Ben Mooney led from the gun and took the gold medals comfortably, while our U18 girls Alannah O'Carroll, Isabel Kenny, Rosa Kirwan & Ara Freeman put up a great battle to take the bronze, while U17 girls Alannah O'Carroll,Niamh Conroy, Richael Browne & Alana Ryan finished 5th and U13 boys, Joe Prendergast, Danny Jones, James Nicholson & Michael O'Shea finished 6th. Sunday was individual events and all of our 60m sprinters comfortably made their finals. In the U 16 boys Josh Pyper & Ben Mooney put in another terrific effort and this time Josh took the bronze medal with Ben finishing in 4th place. Alana Ryan had another fantastic race, pushing all the way to the line to take yet another gold medal and National Championship in the girls U16. Ara Freeman had her usual fantastic start in the girls U18 and she too fought all the way to the line where she unfortunately took a nasty fall at the finish line. Delighted to report that she is recovering well and has a bronze medal for her efforts. Many thanks to all her well wishers! Cillian & Richael Browne were in action again in the 1500m. Richael had  another great race to finish 4th in the girls U17 in a time of 4.58 with Cillian running 4.14 for 8th place in the U19 boys. Amaris Borel & Conor Dempsey both qualified for their 400m finals wih Amaris finish 5th & Conor 6th aftera clash at the break. Alan Gordon cleared 1.30m in the HJ for 12th place. Well done to all who competed and good luck to everyone next Sat. when we get to do it all again!
