Juvenile athletes in T & F league action

Eugenia Bateson reports: Today saw the start of the Juvenile League held in Tallaght Stadium.  For some of our younger Clonliffe Harriers it was their first time to travel to the Tallaght track and for some it was their first ever competition.

Great numbers turned  to compete in 400m from U14 to U16 and distance races for the U11 to U16’s comprising of distances from 500m, 600m and 1500m.  Also on offer was the Long Jump, High Jump, Shot Putt, Javelin and Turbo Javelin.   The Leagues are a fantastic way to try competition at the various events and we would encourage our younger athletes to get out there an give it a go.  Shorter distances will be in round 2 on the 11th May.
Dublin Athletics will publish results shortly, however a few notable performances that we are proud to share.  The distances races were run on times.  Ava Fagan won her 600m heat U12.  Her twin, Lucy finished 6th in her heat.    Millie Ryan also finished 6th in her heat
