The National Development Championships took place in dreadful wet conditions today in Morton Stadium, Santry. Chloe McCarthy competed in the U12 60m and won in delightful style with a new PB of 8.64. Laura McCarthy ran in the U16 100m and was unlucky to be pushed out of the medal positions when she came 4th.
In the national senior heptathlon championships, Andrea Bickerdike competed for Leevale. The events were the 100mH, 200m, 800m, high jump, long jump, shot and javelin. In finishing 4th overall, she won the 200m and 800m, which was a great performance given that she has only been training for the event for the last 4 weeks.
