U9 Boys Relays Sweep the Boards!
Last week culminated with one of the highlights of the athletics year for our younger athletes – the Galway U8-12 Track & Field Championships in Dangan, Galway. With over 180 athletes taking part from the club, to say it was a busy day for our coaches and athletes is a massive understatement.
The club had loads of success throughout the day, medalling in most events and everyone having a good time in the pleasant weather conditions. A big well done to the organising team led by GCH’s Ger Nally and John Kilmartin – with over 500 athletes competing across dozens of events over 7 hours, its a hard one to organise without any hiccups and the day went extraordinarily well for the most part. And thank you to all the parents from our own club who gave up several hours during the day to help as officials – without you this event could not take place.
Full results of the day are as follows:-
Firstly the many podium finishers from Craughwell AC! But whether you finished on the podium or not, all our participants should be immensely proud of competing to the best of their ability. Participation and doing your best is the important thing – a medal is just a nice bonus.
