We had thirty juveniles competing across a range of age groups and they managed to bring home 18 medals betweeen them, including nine gold medals so big congratulations to our 2014 Connacht champions: U12 High Jump Saoirse Healey, U14 Long Jump Aubrey O’Brien, U14 Hurdles and and 800m Brandon Lee, U15 Hurdles and Sprint Lydia Doyle, U18 long Jump, Hurdles and Triple jump Evan Quirke. Evan’s dedication in training really paid off as he achieved a new PB in the long jump of 6.21 metres.
Silver medal winners included U13 Sprint Freya Bohan, U14 Sprint Brandon Lee, U15 Sprint Brandon McMenamin, U16 Hurdles Shannen Lee, U16 High Jump Mathew Treacey, and U18 High Jump Evan Quirke.
