Athletics Update

Success at Santry

 Field Events

 On Monday 25th May the 12 boys in our Field events team competed at Santry’s Morton Stadium. Ruben Bolger (4th Class) got the team off to a fantastic start in the U-11 hurdles by comfortably winning his heat. This was swiftly followed up by excellent performances by Alex O’Meara (5th Class) and Conor Moriarty (6th Class) who were very unlucky not to make the final in their hurdles divisions. All the hard work that we had put into the technique of hurdling paid off as Ruben romped home in 1st place with a fantastic performance.

 Joseph Grau (6th Class) showed fantastic strength and skill in the shot putt and was very unlucky not to place in the final. Meanwhile on the other side of the track Daniel Fitzgerald (5th Class) jumped huge distances in the long jump competition.

Hugo McLoughlin, Eamon Hameid and Oisín Molloy showed amazing stamina in their 600m races despite the fast pace of their races they finished just outside the medals.

Track Events

 We returned to Santry on Thursday 28th May with the track squad of 23 boys. To say that the team gave it everything in their heats and finals is an understatement. Despite narrowly missing a place in the finals of the sprints the boys set their focus on the 4x100m relay heats. All four relay squads ran superbly in their heats. They used the sense of occasion to their advantage and put in faster times than they had ever recorded. 

 

We reached the finals in U 10, U 11 and U14. It became very clear that the work we put in on our changeovers was going to make all the difference. Success was in the air for the U10 relay squad who put in an amazing performance and won silver in their final.

The whole squad put in amazing performances both in training and on the day. They should be very proud of themselves. All the hard work certainly paid off.

WELL DONE AND CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE BOYS!!!!
