Over four days on two different tracks over 90 Raheny juveniles proudly wore the club colours and excelled in their chosen events.
For some it was their first time towing the line or throwing a discus competitively but that never held them back.
Day one in a sunny Tallaght stadium saw activity on the track and in the field. The results read;
Erin Daly 1st U14 Javelin
Noah Beamish 2nd Javelin u16
Finn Beamish 2nd Long Jump u16
Vivienne Lee 3rd 600m u13
Tom Monaghan 2nd 800m u15
Finalists Emily Keogh 250mH, Sophie Kelly 800m, Maggie Foley
Day Two moved to Santry stadium on a Friday evening for some great performances in the u10/u11 500m/600m.
Victoria Leder grabbed silver in the U18 Hammer.
Day three and four stayed in Morton Stadium. The wind was not in the athletes favour with a headwind of 6m/s during the sprint races. It didn’t stop our stars coming home with 17 medals.
