NATIONAL JUVENILE INDOORS 2017

 

The first weekend of the National Juvenile Indoors saw GAC athletes produce some top class performances with some great results.

 The track on Saturday was all about the Relays, with our U15 boys team making the final in one of the tightest races of the day.

 They gave a great performance in the final where another very close finish left them 5th overall

It was the turn of the U18 boys in the afternoon and having finished a comfortable second in their heat, they went on to take the silver medals in style in the final.

 

We had a number of field eventer’s competing on Saturday and some great results in the Long Jump, with Ellen McNally taking Bronze in the U15 Girls with 5m 05 and Emma Quirk finishing 6th with 4m 79, James Nicholson taking Bronze in the U15 boys with 4m 98, with Joe Prendergast taking 5th with 4m 77 and Aodhan Daly taking 6th in the U17 boys with 5m 34. Sophie Nicholson had a 7th place finish in the U17 high jump and Alannah O’Carroll a 5th place in the U19 pole Vault.

 

Sunday saw our distance runners take to the track for the 1500m and they produced some very exciting races with great results. Richael Browne had a fantastic run in the U19, controlling the race right from the start and pulling away from the field in the last two laps to comfortably take the Indoor title for the second year in a row. Sarah O’Connor took on the girls U17 race right from the gun and had a fantastic run that resulted in her taking the bronze medal and setting a new 1500m PB.

 

Troy Scully had to cover the distance twice, as there were heats in the boys U18, but as always he rose to the challenge running a PB in the heat to qualify comfortably for the final where he followed up with yet another PB and a 10th place finish.

 

A fantastic race from Rachel Casey in the U18 Walk to finish 6th with a huge PB of 7.59m. Rachel has progressed hugely and has taken 49 secs off her time for this distance in the past year.

 

A good win in her heat saw Alana Ryan safely through to the 60m final where she finished 4th , but disappointment for Jack McGlone after an unfortunate break at the start of his.

 

Silver in the U19 Long Jump for James Vance, losing out on the gold by a mere .01 of a centimeter and 13th place finishes for Ellen McNally in the U15 High Jump and for Sophie Nicholson in the U17.

 

Well done to all who competed over the two days & a huge Thank You to the parents & coaches who supported them during the weekend.

 

Best of luck to everyone on the final day next Saturday !
