It was a busy day for club athletes at yesterdays North Leinster Schools Track & Field Championships. We had a large number of athletes in action for their various schools.There were gold medal wins from Rhona Pierce in the Intermediate Girls 1500mtr and Eryn Devine in the u16 mile race. Silver medals were won by Isabel Carron in the Inter girls 3000mtrs, Sarah Byrne in the u16 mile and Laura Costello in the Inter Girls 300mtrs. Disappointment for Aoimhe Downey in the Inter Girls 800mtrs, finishing 4th, who despite carrying a painful knee injury and has been out of action for the past number of weeks as a result, battled bravely through the race. Disappointment also for Aine McCarthy finishing in that unlucky 4th spot in the Inter Girls 1500mtrs.Full results as follows:Minor Girls 1100 mtrs; Eibhlin McCarthy 13th, Lauren Byrne 18th, Orla Thompson 21stMinor Boys 1100mtrs: Stephen O’Connor 14thJunior Girls 1500mtrs: Sive Duncan 8thJunior Boys 800mtrs: Conor Tuck 10thInter Girls 300mtrs: Laura Costello 2nd, Ellen Tuck 6thInter girls 800mtrs: Aoimhe Downey 4thInter Girls 1500mtrs: Rhona Pierce 1st, Aine McCarthy 4th, Orla Bollard 6thInter Girls 3000mtrs: Isabel Carron 2ndu/16 Girls mile: Eryn Devine 1st, Sarah Byrne 2ndCongratulations to all and good luck to Rhona, Eryn, Sarah, Isabel & Laura who will contest the Leinster Schools T&F finals in a few weeks time.
