National Indoor Combined Events Championships
A huge congratulations to Aoife Carter and Gráinne O'Sullivan, who were the first ever Bray Runners athletes to compete at the National Indoor Combined Events Championships this past weekend in Athlone.
The girls competed in 5 events over the course of 5 hours: 60m hurdles, shot putt, long jump, high jump and the 800m. The standard at these Championships (and any national juvenile championships) is extremely high, and the girls did themselves and their club proud - and they were the first to officially compete in the brand new club singlets.
Gráinne scored huge total of 1982 points to finish 8th place overall and was the highest placed Wicklow athlete in any age group, while Aoife scored 1591 to finish 13th. Between them, the girls got PBs or at least equalled their PBs in every event. As they know, there's still plenty of room to get even higher scores next time, and this is already a huge improvement from when they both competed in the Leinster outdoor combined events last summer, where they finished 6th and 14th. Well done both!
