East Cork Track and Field Championships
Youghal AC had a large number of athletes in action in their first Track and Field meet for 2013 in Tower Park in Youghal on 7th April last. This was Day one of the East Cork Track and Field Championships.
Thanks and well done to all the club officials who did a magnificent job in their preparations of the venue.  Conditions were freezing and there was a large number of new athletes who were participating for their first time who did very well. Numbers were also very big and heats were held on most sprint events.  A special mention to those who were successful in winning individual medals on this occasion but there were several very good performances with athletes coming close to medal positions.
