The Cushinstown Ac indoor sports was held last Sunday the 26th at their newly extended indoor facility. We had a very good attendance from the club with over 30 athletes competing from u8 to u14. This was a great experience especially for our younger athletes many of whom were competing for the first time. The competition was of a very high standard with athletes from all the top Meath and Louth clubs attending. The u8s &u9s showed some great potential with Ciara Coroner and Erin O’ Reilly finishing 2nd and 3rd in the girls u9 long jump, Katie Doherty had a great run winning the girls u8 30m, Caoimhe Fitzsimons finished 3rd in the girls U9 60m. James Kelly competing up and an age took gold in the boy’s u9 long jump. The Ratoath girls dominated the older ages sprint events with Laura Kelly finishing 3rd in the girls u10 60m, Aimee Doherty won the girls u11 60m, Lili O’ Connor won the girls u12 60m in a hand time of 8.4s with Aoife Rutherford hot on her heels in 2nd, Emma Coroner won the girls u13 60m in a tight finish and Ivie Okome won the girls u14 60m. Matthew Buckley had the performance of the day with a powerful run in the boys u13 60 with a fantastic hand time of 7.7s. Matthew also won the boys u13 long jump. Emma Coroner and Sophie O Connor finished 2nd and 3rd in the girls U13 long jump, Fionn Drummond won the boys u11 long jump with Harry O’ Connor 3rd, Fionn also finished second in the boys u11 60m. We also had some great results in the high jump, Darragh Casey finished 3rd in the boys u14 event, Lili O’ Connor finished 2nd in the girls u12 and Lara Power finished 2nd in the girls u14 event. We had great performances from all our athletes on the day and this will have been a great experience for them when they compete in the Meath inter club track and field league which will be held also in Cushinstown on February 26th.
Please note that the date for the Mini club league for U9-12 Athletes has been changed to Sunday the 16th of February, at Dunboyne Ac , starting at 12 noon.
