An explosive series of repeated personal best performances saw Seán McCabe leap to Gold out to almost 7metres!! in the U-18 Long Jump, narrowly missing out on the Championship Best Performance.
This was immediately followed up with a solid Gold performance in the U-18 110metres High Hurdles. This perhaps had the impact to propel Glenn Carty & Briain Cullinan to great victory in their respective U-13 & U-16 sprint hurdles. Fabulous performances also from Gearoid Tuohy in a very pacey U-15 800m as well as Eva Sheridan in sprint hurdles and Ruairi McLoughlin in the U-15 Long Jump, as well as Ross Campbell in the U-15 Triple Jump.
This was Day 1 of the the 3 day Championships. Well done to those who proudly represented Sligo AC today and best of luck & fun to all who compete on the weekend after next.
Also a note of gratitude to our stalwart Anne McHugh who as usual officiated stoically as always.
