The Striders had four teams competing at the Leinster 4X100m relay event, held at Le Cheile AC’s track, at Leixlip. The BU17 team kick started the day with a well earned Silver medal. Joshua Hewlett led off with a strong lead leg, Cian Flanagan and Patrick Doyle were excellent in the middle legs and Nic Walkden powered to the line to complete a flawless round. Well done to the team as they’ve worked hard on their speed-work and baton changes. The BU14 team of Darragh Flannelly, Oisin MacEochaidh, Owen Lennon and Aidan Shannon were strong in their heat and ran a great final to finish just outside the medals. Likewise our two U16 teams both qualified for the finals and were unlucky to come up against some really strong opposition. The U16 girls were represented by Aisling Power, Aoife NiEochaidh, Eve Byrne and Louise Doyle. Our final team in action were the U16 boys squad of Patrick Doyle, Dawid Mlodzianowski, Daniel Wickham, Ryan Kielthy and Adam O’Connor. Well done to all teams who performed really well at a high standard of competition.
