Sligo AC Competing in Connaught Team Event
Sligo Athletic club U9, U10 and U11 competitors took to the track on Saturday afternoon last to compete in the Connaught Team Event. 20 teams from Sligo AC took part having qualified from the County Sligo Team event. All competitors gained great experience as many had their first outing at Connaught competition. Three teams qualified for the All Ireland Team Event to be held in Templemore later this month with U9 Darragh Hennigen and Liam Carty scoring bronze in the 300m, U10 Shane McGlone and Sean Kerrigan bronze in the 60m and Eoin Carty and Richard Hunter bronze in the 500m. In the U12 section Leo Doherty ran an excellent race in the 600m to claim gold and Tara Carty came away with a silver medal in the Shot putt. Well done to all who completed and represented the club so well.
