Munster Junior Championships and Juvenile Combined Events Championships

Monday May the 5th saw Belgooly AC heading to Waterford for the Munster junior championships and juvenile combined events championships on another wet and very windy Irish summer day. Grace McKenzie was our sole representative in the Junior Championships and in preparation for her up coming trip to the UK for their U20 Heptathlon championships Grace took on 5 of her technical events with great success. In very testing conditions she put in some great performances cheered on by her 4 young club mates who were taking part in the combined events of Danny Kelly, Ross Corkery, Eoghain Nash and Padraig Nash.
Grace 1st Long Jump, 2ed High Jump and Javelin, 3rd shot and hurdles
Padraig 2ed U15 CE
Eoghain 4th U12 CE  
Danny 7th U11 CE
Ross 9th U11 CE

Padraig set a new pb in high jump 1.67m and Long Jump 4.93 on his way to the silver medal, Eoghain had a great High jump and 800m, Danny had a great sprint and 600m and Ross had a great sprint and long jump this should set the boys up great for up coming competitions
