National Indoor Junior & u23 Championships

Despite a few late withdrawals there were fine performances from some of our Juniors and under 23s this morning at their national indoors:

Anna McGinley & Sean Orajuba placed highest with two sixth placed finishes.

Ava McKeon 10th Overall in 60m Hurdles with 8.71s

Ella O’Connor 7th in 800m heat with 2:23.58

Nicole Quirke 6th in 60m heat with 8.19s

Nicole Quirke 4th in 200m heat with 27.16s

Jack Kinane 5th in 60m heat with 7.57s

Jack Kinane 2nd in 200m heat with 24.63s

Sean Orajuba 4th in 60m heat with 7.30s

Sean Orajuba 1st in Heat, 6th in Final in 200m with 22.81s

The Junior Men’s relay team with Sean, Jack, Luke Dahler and Renato Brule also competed in the heats but were unfortunate to miss out on a final place.

Under 23 Anna McGinley was 6th overall in the 1500m with 5:05.61. great run by Anna

Also in the u23 category, Aaron Brennan was 6th in the 1500m heat in 4:04.64

There were some very notable absences for various reasons – and the likes of Robert McDonnell, Andrew Egan, Emma Moore would have been favoured to medal.

These results & the cohort we have at the two age groups is very encouraging for the future.
