7 Gold and 1 Silver - South Leinster Track and Field Championships

We had a very rewarding day out in Kilkenny today as some of our First Years enjoyed their first taste of schools athletics. First up on the podium with gold medals were the Minor 4x100m relay team of Luke and Sam O'Neill, Aaron Smith and Leon Nolan, winning with a time of 51.8sec, just outside the championship record. David McDonald competing at Junior level jumped 6m to take gold in the long jump which he followed shortly afterwards with gold in the 200m. David broke the championship record which was remarkable considering he will compete in the same age band next year. Next up was Leon Nolan in the Minor 500m, he blew the field away and cantered home for his second gold of the day. Sam won his second gold of the day, winning the Minor 75m Hurdles, while twin brother Luke got silver in the Minor 80m sprint.
All now go on to the Leinster Finals in Santry on May 15th.
