Successful Weekend for Kilkenny Juveniles at National Indoors

Over 1000 juvenile athletes from all over the country travelled to the Juvenile Indoor Championships at the Meadowbank Sports Arena in Magherafelt, Derry at the weekend. Kilkenny Clubs were well represented and competed with considerable success.

In total Kilkenny Athletes brought home a haul of six gold, seven silver and three bronze medals making the long journey worthwhile. Many other athletes performed well and were unlucky to lose out. Great credit is due to the athletes their club mentors and coaches.

While there were fine performances all round some of the talking points were the great performance of Jack Manning winning Gold in the Shot Putt and losing out to his clubmate Victor Costelloe on countback in the high jump and Luke Fitzpatrick ‘s storming run in the 600m race.
