Last weekend`s Dublin Juvenile Championships at the Morton Stadium provided ample evidence of the healthy state of the future of our club with outstanding performances by all our Juvenile athletes. The Championships were held over Friday, Saturday and Sunday in generally ideal conditions. As usual under the guidance of Juvenile Captain Gladys Cooper and her team there was a hugh turn out of youngsters wearing the black `n`amber. And boy did those young Harriers do themselves, their families and their club proud with medal winning performances all round and even where medals were not won these boys and girls gave it their all.
Pride of place in this roll of honour goes to our U/19 middle distance Golden Girl Becky Woods who cleaned up in the middle distance events taking Gold in the 800m, 1500m and 3000m. Wonderful stuff from a star of the not too distant future.
Sarah Woods keeping the family name in lights rowed in with Gold in the 400M Hurdles and Silver in the 800M.
Khadijah Dridi also took two medals with Gold in the girls U/18 800M and Silver in the 3000M.
Of our boys Owen McDonnell in U/17 took Gold in the 1500M and Silver in the 800M. Sean O`Firman in the U/16 Hurdles took home Gold in the 250M and Silver in the 80M.
