Two of the stars of the day were in the throws with Sophie Mullane throwing the turbo javelin out to a massive 17.50m to take the gold medal ahead of Lola Whitney-Mangan who took the silver with 14.10.

Lauren Kelly was in blistering form in the 60m sprint to take victory in her heat of the 60m in a time of 9.19 with Ruby Maher hot on her heels in 9.56. Lauren’s time was good enough to take gold with Ruby narrowly missing out on bronze by 0.11s when placing 4th.

Lauren led a clean sweep for the club in the 60m hurdles when taking victory ahead of Lola Whitney-Manager with Maeve Desbonnet taking the bronze. The club repeated this feat in the high jump with Lauren taking her third gold of the day and sharing the top spot with Reailtin Ward and Laoise Colleran with each jumper leaping a best of 1.25 and tying on countback for the gold, with Maeve Desbonnet just missing out when taking 4th place with 1.20.

Ella Whyte was unlucky in the long jump, leaping a massive jump on her first attempt which would have put her in the medals but unfortunately it was mistaken for a practice attempt and her best subsequent attempt was 3.39 just 7cm short of the podium places.

The U12 boys didn’t disappoint either with Halle Feerick putting in an incredible series of jumps in the high jump to clear 1.31 and claim the Galway title.
