Wicklow Star Awards

Last Friday night the annual Wicklow Star Awards ceremony was held in Wioklow town, hosted by Inbhear Dee A.C.. Two of our athletes won awards. Grainne O'Sullivan won the U16 -U19 girls award for her tremendous achievements in 2019. Grainne has won Leinster and National medals throughout the year in the Long Jump and 200m.  Grainne won Leinster Gold and National silver at the schools combined events which led her to be chosen for the schools international combined events competition in Glasgow where she represented Ireland. This made her the obvious and very deserved choice for this award. Well done Grainne!

James Foot also got a Special Recognition Award for his achievements in 2019 in the 600m on the track but in particular for his cross country season where he won Leinster Gold in both the u12 and the u13 races and also gold in the u12 national event. He also placed 2nd nationally in the boys u13 race. Well done James!

Upcoming Wicklow & Leinster Track & Field Championships

The outdoor Track & Field season is fast approaching and the Club has decided to make the Wicklow Championships (8 & 9 May in Greystones) and the Leinster Championships (13 & 14 June in Tullamore) the priority events for this upcoming outdoor season.
To this end, we will be focusing our training, on both Tuesdays and Fridays to ensure our Athletes are fully prepared for their events. At this stage, athletes should be considering what events they intend to participate in and let us know by email or what’s app so we can put a training structure together to prepare our athletes properly in advance of these competitions. For the Wicklow Championships we would like all our eligible athletes to participate in at least one event, be that on the track or in the field. After the Wicklow Championships, the coaches will discuss with the athletes if the Leinster championships are an option.

We would like all our Athletes to make an effort to get to the Friday track session every week,or at least every other week, in the coming weeks so as to prepare adequately for these competitions.
