Huge congratulations to Aaron Cullen and Craig Giles who both competed in the All-Ireland’s Track and Field Championships in Tullamore. Craig started the day’s competition with a fast 800m, he stayed with the top group and held his own placing 2nd with a time of 1min 57secs! Aaron was up next in the U16 mile and it was an amazing tight tactical race that came down to a photo finish with Aaron winning the race and placing 1st. Craig was up again to race in the 1500m, with tired legs and tough competition Craig had a phenomenal race with less than 300m to go he made his move passing out 3 athletes to finish in 2nd place!
Both boys have represented the school with distinction and the athletics club and school are very proud of them! Their hard work at training and commitment to athletics have shown them to be great role models for the younger members of the club.
Wishing ALL the members of the athletics club a great and active summer.
