On Wednesday the 27th of April, the Inter-Loreto track & field championships took place in Morton stadium in Santry. Loreto had athletes from 1st to 5th year participating in a range of track and field events. The girls performed well in all their events against athletes from Loreto schools across Ireland. Ava Fennessey finished 2nd in both the 400m and Long Jump. Both medals were won against girls from the senior grade, which was a great achievement as she is from 2nd year. Our relay teams also performed well, finishing 6th out of the 19 schools in the junior & senior grade. Other notable performances were recorded by Caoimhe Mulcahy, who came 4thafter a finish line photo in the 300m, and Jess Caron who finished 4th in the shot put. Veerle Van der Wal also finished 4th in the long jump. The girls attention now turns to the East Munster Championships in Templemore next week. A big thank you must go to Loreto Balbriggan who hosted a very well run event on the day.
Thanks also to Mr. Kehir and Ms. Barlow who accompanied the girls on the day
