Galway U12-19 Track & Field

Galway U12-19 Track & Field

At the Galway Track & Field last Saturday, incessant rain fell all day long which dampened spirits for most of the day. Nevertheless the large number of Craughwell AC athletes in attendance competed with distinction with many fine performances. The high jump and hurdles had to be postponed to this Thursday at 7pm in Dangan but the remaining events went ahead despite the weather. Maria McNamara was in top form when winning the U17 long jump and triple jump, taking silver in the shot putt, adding 2 gold medals in the U17 and U18 relays and guesting in the 300m and 300m hurdles which she duly won. Katie O’Donoghue set a new club record in the shot putt when taking gold in the U18 girls event with a throw of 7.45m while Pádraic Tobin won a tight 800m battle with Finn Stoneman and Conor Gillen, crossing the line to take the U18 title in a time of 2.07.2.
