The Track & Field season ended on a real high for the Striders, thanks to great performances at the Nationals from Aoife Muldoon, Eve Byrne and Joshua Hewlett. Well done to Aoife Muldoon on finishing 5th in all Ireland under 17 triple jump with a new pb of 9.34 only 4cms off 3 place. With guidance from coach Vance O’Reilly, Aoife has made enormous progress in a short time.
Congratulations to Eve Byrne who narrowly missed the medals in the All Ireland Walk. Eve’s fourth place is a great reward for all the hard work she’s put in and she leads the way for our growing group of under age walkers. With Eve’s natural talent for this event, it was no surprise to see her perform so well.
Finally, congratulations to Joshua Hewlett on his amazing 1st place in the Boys u16 Javelin National Track & Field championships. The first National field event title ever won by a Strider. Just reward for years of dedication and hard work. This victory provides inspiration for all our athletes and is a brilliant end to our Track & field season.
