Juveniles get Championship September off to a flyer

Last night`s Club Juvenile track and field championships was an outstanding success. The numbers taking part had to be see to be believed. For example the requirement for heats in the sprint events, indeed, the U/12 boys needed 3 heats to get the finalists, the girls U/12 long jump had 25 competitors with a similar number in their middle distance event. There was also some top class races with close finishes to keep the line judges on their toes. All of the athletes should be very pleased with how they competed last night and no doubt the watching contingent of parents and family members were duly impressed. Afterward at the prize giving there was drinks and goodies provided by the long time sponsor of the club`s juvenile races Colm Doran.
