Last weekend in summary!!!
Jack Gilmartin ran in the Under 14 1500m National final and ran an excellent 4.44 to take home 7th place in what was a really competitive race 👏🏻🇮🇪
Katie McCarthy represented the jumpers as she qualified for the Under 14 Long Jump and jumped a best of 4.61m to finish 10th in Ireland 💪🏻🇮🇪
Max Hollingsworth qualified for the Under 15 national champs in both 100 & 200m. Max missed out on the final of the 100m by one hundredth of a second and got the faster heat in the 200m and again agonisingly missed out on the final, tough going but no doubt Max will be back for more next year 💪🏻🇮🇪
