Ronnie’s U13s report

Craughwell u13s had a superb day in Athlone at the Connaught indoors with a total of 24 athletes taking part during the day.

Long jump - Keevagh Barry taking gold and Emma O Donavan making the 4th place qualifier for the Nationals. Emily Kinane and Megan Devane both had great days in the pit. Lauren Kilduff broke 3 times but no doubt will amend her run up and be back to her usual top 4 placing once again. Sean Hoade placed 2nd and Cian Brady placed 5th

60 meters sprint - Keevagh Barry winning gold with a massive PB and Claudia Fitzpatrick with an amazing run and PB to take 4th place national qualifier place. Emily Kinane, Ciara O Connor, Chloe Keane, Lauren Kilduff, Megan Devane all ran extremely well also. Cian Brady had an outstanding run to place 5th and picked up a new PB for his great effort

60-meter hurdles - Katelyn Walsh and Emily Kinane both had fine runs. Conor Penny took silver followed by Sean Hoade in 3rd. Declan O Connell had a great run and PB for his efforts

High Jump – Emma O Donavan won Gold and Chloe Keane finishing 3rd. Ciara O Connor also jumping very well. Conor Penny won Gold and Keelan Moorhead taking 4th to qualify for the nationals

600 meters – This in my opinion is an extremely hard event as the standard is so high to qualify. Emma O Donavan took bronze with an outstanding finish in the last 6om, which got the crowd going to say the least. Ciara o Connor had a great run and I believe a PB also. Keelan Moorhead got a PB and Declan O Connell ran their hearts out but only 3 to qualify and not their day.

Shot Put- Kiera Mernagh was our only athlete in the circle and as she said herself, "not my day", but I have no doubt will keep training and working to get her just rewards in the coming years in the shot put.

1000 Walk – Lillian Walsh took Bronze, with a new PB to match!

Lastly were the relays. We fielded 3 teams for the girls and 2 for the boys
