Sligo AC at Connacht Team Event, Athlone IT

Younger members do club proud. Pics by Carina Clarke.
Some 23 teams and 8 relay teams competed for Sligo Athletic Club in Athlone last Saturday in the Connacht Team Event competition.

All competed well and it was a good day all round for the club. Good experience was gained and some were unlucky to miss out on medals but all performed well with some personal best performances on the hottest day this year.

Congratulations to U9’s Esa McCaffrey and Eabha Cawley who won bronze in the 60m. They will now compete in the All Ireland team event in Ballybofey on 29th June.

In the U12 competition the club was represented by Eoghan Donaghy, Shane McGlone and Lauren French. Eoghan continued his good form in the turbo javelin and secured a silver medal. Eoghan will compete in the All Ireland U12 in Tullamore on 6th July.

Meanwhile the club extends best wishes to all competing in the Connacht juvenile track championships in Athlone on Sunday next (June 23rd). A strong team of athletes from under 13 upwards will compete for the club.
