Cavan Sportshall Competition for Under 9 - 12s
There will be a Cavan Sportshall competition on Saturday 19th October, starting at 11am in Breffni College, Cavan. This is an indoor event for under 9 to under 12 age groups featuring a mix of running, jumping and throwing events, finishing with team relays and is intended as a fun, low pressure introduction to competition for new athletes as well as those who have been to many events before.
Those who took part competitions before the summer did very well with strong results across all events. We hope to continue to build on this with a good turnout and encourage all athletes to take part.
The Tailteann Schools Interprovincial Championship was held on Saturday 22nd June in Santry and our very own Casey Mulvey represented her school St Clares College Ballyjamesduff at the event, taking part in the shot putt and discus. Casey had a quiet start to the discus, slowly building up to her best throw in the final round where she sent the 1kg disc out to a distance of 37.10 metres, which saw her take the gold medal. Casey also took part in the shot putt where she just missed out on a silver medal, her best throw of 14.34m instead earning her the bronze medal. Congrats Casey.
Cavan Children's Games 6th May, at PeaceLink, Clones
The 2019 Cavan Children's Games took place at the PeaceLink athletics track in Clones on a mild bank holiday Monday 6th May. The day featured a mix of sprints, distance running, jumps, throws and team relays for the under 9 to 13 age groups, with the club ably represented by an enthusiastic squad.
In the Under 9 events, Emer Briody took third lace in the 300m. Twins Dylan and Oisin Farrelly had a great battle with each other in the boys 300m race, with the pair crossing the line too close to separate, so the judges awarded them joint first place. Dylan also took third place in the 60m sprint. In the U9 relay, the two boys were part of the gold medal winning team.
In the Under 10s, Shonnagh Brennan took the silver medal in the turbojavelin event, with teammate Ciara O'Reilly taking the bronze. Ciara and Bethan Stokes both made it to the final of their sprint event, but just missed out in a very tight finish that saw the top five athletes cross the line almost at once. But they didn't miss out in the relay, where Bethan, Ciara, Shonnagh and Emer had a fantastic race that saw them win the gold medal.
In the Under 11 category, Gráinne Gilroy picked up a silver medal in the sprint before going on to win the turbojavelin event. Liam Briody had a strong run in the boys events, winning the sprint and taking bronze in the 600m race. The girls relay team of Gráinne, Shonnagh, Bethan and Ciara battled hard to take third place.
And in the Under 12s, Zak Farrell was third in the shot putt, quite close to the silver medalist. The U12 relay team of Keelan Gilroy, Zak Farrell, Liam Briody and Gráinne Gilory took fourth place.
Well done to all who took part, we hope you had a great time.
