ALL IRELAND U9 TO U11 TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS
U10 GIRLS WIN NATIONAL RELAY TITLE
Youghal AC U10 girls did their parents, coaches and club proud at Tullamore on 22nd June. They won a total of eight All Ireland medals. The girls won the National Relay title with some fantastic performances from all athletes in a time of 1.03.57 which is a PB for them. Well deserved as they worked really hard. The relay team included Grace Rooney, Sophia Connon, Avril Millerick, Tara Hickey and Alex Cashman. Grace Rooney and Sophia Connon came 2nd in the 2 x 60m in a combined time of 00.19.7. Grace had the fastest time overall and won the Gold individual medal; her time was 00.09.09. Avril Millerick and Grace Rooney teamed up in the 2 x 500m and were so unlucky to finish 4th by just a fraction of a second. Avril’s time was 1.44.42 and Grace’s time was 1.40.22. Tara Hickey and Alex Cashman did the team turbo javelin and were 11th with a combined throw of 15.89.
It was a tremendously exciting day for all and great to see all girls come home with medals. They can now relax for the Summer and enjoy some open sports!
