Tallaght AC Saturday 13th May 2017
League 3 in Tallaght kicked off at 10.30am where the track events started off with the Girls U/14 400m in which Skerries AC were represented by Eimear and Orlagh, followed quickly by Ben in the U/15 400m. Meanwhile Darragh and Michael represented the club in their first High Jump Event, which they thoroughly enjoyed. James tried out the Long Jump in his first ever event for the Club.
Next up on track were Keva, Ailbhe & Grace who was competing in her first ever event, in the U/12 600m. This race was followed by Keren, James and Joseph in the U/10’s 500m, again in her first event for the club. Then followed the U/13’s 600m where Skerries AC was represented by Daphney, who was the final representative of the Ndjantang family for the club. After his run, Joseph lined up for his turn at the Turbo Javelin.
Michael and Darragh, after a bit of gentle persuasion, competed in the U/12’s 600m where Michael had an impressive run. The events were ticking along nicely and running pretty much to schedule and more importantly the rain was holding off. The final track events were the 1500m for Lorcan and Ben, while Eimear and Orlagh rounded off the day with the Long Jump.
All track events were decided on time and field events on the best of three jumps. Well done to Ben who picked up points in both his races.
Big thanks to Ide, Stephen and Fiona who looked after the athletes on Saturday and for Mick in assisting with the Javelin. Thanks to the parents for their support and encouragement. Congratulations to all the athletes who participated, photos depict a happy bunch of athletes, even if two boys are missing!!
League 4 is Sunday 28th May @ 10.30am back in Tallaght.
