Leevale athletes were once again in great form on the final day (day 3) of the national juvenile championships held in a sunny Tullamore on Sunday.
Ryan O’Leary was a very comfortable winner of the boys U17 200m in a time of 22.76s to compliment the 100m title we won the previous weekend.
Reece Ademola dominated the boys U15 high jump, winning with ease, clearing 1.71m and missing agonisingly in his record attempts at 1.83m.
Harry Nevin was second in a highly competitive boys U14 200m final in 24.84s.
Katie Moynihan took silver in the girls U17 javelin with an excellent throw of 41.11m.
Shane Aherne ran a fantastic 250m hurdles final to take his first individual national medal when finishing second. Shane’s time of 32.03s was well inside the old championship best performance.
Emily Wall, running from lane 8, finished an excellent second in the girls U15 250m hurdles final in 36.73s
