Top 4 in the Intermediate Girls Long Jump
Aisling Keady, Lorraine Delaney, Laura Cunningham, Caoilin Milton

With approximately 1500 entries for the South Connacht Schools Track & Field Championships, Dangan was thronged last Thursday on a busy busy day for athletics. With cold and wet conditions all week, amazingly the weather cleared up nicely for just Thursday and we managed to escape the rain for all bar a couple of minutes of the day. It was yet another brilliant day for many athletes from Craughwell AC with a decent representation from the club taking part for their schools and many qualifying for the Connacht finals which will be held in Athlone on Thursday 14th May.

Highlight of the day had to be Laura Cunningham's staggering 5.16m leap to win the Intermediate Girls Long Jump, her first time to break the magical 5 metre barrier. Laura's jump puts her in 5th place on the club's all-time outdoor list. Lorraine Delaney was in splendid jumping form also with a 4.96m effort on her first attempt that went very close to the 5m mark. Conditions were ideal for jumping with no wind, a fact which helped several others to improve their PBs significantly including Shauna Tobin and Caoilin Milton with 30cm and 20cm improvements. The top 12 best ever jumps by female athletes in the club is as follows:-
