ADAMSTOWN

ATHLETIC CLUB

U10 Boys are Leinster champions: the U10 Boys Team of Luke Byrne, Graham O Reilly, David O Gorman and Christopher Mahon were on fire last Saturday 11th June at Leinster Team Championships.

The boys had to compete in the long jump, ball throw, 600m, 60m, gathering points in each event. They were in 1st place going in to the final event the relay, and they made well sure nobody was going to deny them their 1st place position by stronging home 1st in the relay. Christopher reckoned it was his lucky runners that brought them the gold, but we think it could be the hard training they have been doing over the last few months.

Also competing were U9 Girls team of Leah Carthy Walsh, Ella English, Alanna Staunton and Roisin O Neil, U11 Girls Eaodain Stafford, Sonia Mooney, Kate Jackman and Rachel Power, U12 Girls Zara Power, Triona Mooney, Marguerite Furlong and Aoife Muldoon. The girls had also four events to contend with and were within reach of medals going into the final relay when the tables turned and it just wasn't to be their day.

We had five competitors taking part in the County B Championships on Thursday 9th June, U9 Boys 60m 1st Ben Wall, 2nd Cormac Byrne, Ball Throw 1st Cormac Byrne, 2nd Ben Wall U10 Boys 60m 2nd Graham O Reilly, 3rd Luke Byrne, Ball Throw 1st Graham O Reilly, 3rd Luke Byrne, U9 Boys mixed relay a great finish by Craig Bradley to bring his team home 3rd. Well done everyone.

Due to clashing of athletic events, only three competitors from Adamstown could make it to the County Community Games finals in Cranford last weekend but Adamstown did prove successful. Boys U14 Shot Putt JP Furlong claimed the bronze - 3rd, Boys U12 Long Puck, Seanie O Neill got the silver -2nd. Also making his mark in the Long Puck was Stephen O Gorman, both boys can compete in this event again next year. Well done boys.
