Connacht Track & Field Athletics results u9 – u12

The Connacht Track and Field Championships took place in Athlone on Saturday 9th June in very hot conditions for the u9 to u12 age groups.  The times for the top two athletes in each event were combined to give an overall result in the u9 – u11.  A number of Loughrea athletes participated on the day.  

In the u11, 60m Aoibhin Farrell and Emma Stewart were silver medal winners and later on in the day went on to win another silver in the Long Jump, Aoibhin having the best jump overall with a jump of 3m.71 and Emma jumping 3m.13.

In the u12, Chloe Casey stormed ahead to win the 600m in a time of 152.38 her best time to date.

Well done also to Caoimhe Farrell who competed in the u9, 60m and 300m but unfortunately did not have a partner on the day and Gavin Headd who took part in the u12, shot put with a throw of 5m.80 and the u12, Long Jump with a jump of 3m.22  while Ethan Reddington and Vincent Cannon were paired in the Long Jump, Ethan jumping 2m.92 and Vincent 2m.82.
