Saturday saw the start of the Dublin Athletic Board Juvenile Leagues in Santry Stadium. We had 27 athletes competing across various track and field events. The sprint races were decided by heats, semi finals and finals and the middle distance races were decided on times. We had semi-finalists and finalists across all the age groups for the sprints and await official results regarding the middle distance races and field events.
Each and every athlete performed to the best of their abilities. From the photos it is obvious they all enjoyed the day and were there for each other. Kate, Laura, Rachel Grace and Caoimhe were competing for the Club for the first time and they didn’t let their nerves get the better of them. Congratulations to all our athletes on their great performances, they did themselves, their parents, their coaches and Skerries AC proud.
Thanks to Brenda and Michael for officiating on the day, Thanks also to John, Maeve, Seamus, Carole, Deirdre, Paul, Gareth and Diane for looking after our athletes and to all our coaches for their time each week coaching our athletes. Last but not least the parents whose support and encouragement from the stands means a whole lot to our budding athletes. Unfortunately poor Aoibheann couldn’t compete today as she was ill this morning. Get well soon.
Well done everyone, looking forward to seeing you all again on 27th at League 2.
