Pictured are the Ratoath AC junior and senior squads that won both senior men relays (4 x 100m & medley relay) and finished second in the junior 4 x 100m at the Meath Championships. Eamon Wallace, Neil Finnegan, Luke Ennis, Peter Doherty, Abraham Zaidan, Josh Byrne, Tom Gannon and Cian O Connor.
The Leinster schools track and field championships were held yesterday in Santry. Deirdre Healy had another excellent run in the junior girls 800m finishing a close third and qualifying for the All Ireland despite being badly hampered when the athlete immediately in front of her at the 300m point took a heavy fall.
Ciaran McCarthy also ran well in the junior boys 1,100m and is definitely one to watch in the future after having made a great improvement this season.
Great to see such a big turnout from our juvenile section and especially the girls teams at last nights Meath relay championships - congrats to coaches and parents. Cannot remember the last time we fielded more girls than boys teams. Below is a list of teams that managed to get into the medals:
