Post date: May 01, 2012 11:39:10 AM

Day two of the East Cork Track and Field Championships were held in Tower Park, Youghal on 21st April. Well done and thanks to all the hard-working committee who did an excellent job in preparing the venue which looked very well on the day. Youghal AC had a good turnout of juvenile athletes and it was great to see some of our older athletes back in action.

Well done to all our athletes some of whom are very new to the sport and especially the younger athletes who had to compete in heats in the sprints and middle distance races because of such high numbers. A special well done to Patricia Curtin who participated in every event so well and this was Patricia's final year competing as a juvenile in this championship.after 11 years.
