A huge ‘Well Done’ to all our runners who took part in the Athletics NI Northern Ireland Finals. The race took place at the City of Belfast Playing Fields, Mallusk on a beautiful morning, ideal for running. The competition was very high, as this race was between the top three teams from over 4,000 children, from each of the different areas across Northern Ireland.
We were delighted that both our boys’ and girls’ teams were successful in achieving a place in the race. Everyone ran with determination and showed great effort. This resulted in Top Ten finishes for both teams with the girls finishing 8th and the boys finishing 10th - an amazing result!! The boys’ team were also named Southern Area Winners! Special mention must go to Oliver who finished 9th and Sam who finished 18th as they will now be invited to join the Flahavan’s Athletics Northern Ireland Junior Endurance Squad.
Many thanks for all parents and family members who supported the children with lifts and encouragement.
