Once again the Sligo AC Juveniles competed today and gave performances that each one of them and their coaches should be very proud of. They also came away with a considerable medal haul, Zak Irwin claimed gold in the boys U/17 200m final in an impressive time of 22.83, this was backed up be 3 silver medals by our walkers Orlaith Delahunt, Dylan Carty & Robbie Kelly, there were also 2 brilliant bronze medals for our long jumpers, Emily Burns who was demoted on the last jump of the competition after sitting in silver throughout, and Colm Bourke who just keeps improving leaped an impressive 6.38 to claim his first ever National medal. There was also brilliant performances by Stacey Kerr in the girls U/16 200m final finishing a superb 4th, Caelainn McGonigle gave a brave performance finishing 7th in her 800m final and 2 brilliant runs by Thomas Delahunt and Aishan Patil in their 800m events. Well done to all athletes and coaches for representing the club with such distinction.
