West Waterford Athletic Club Juvenile Notes
Small Schools Heats on Thurdsday May 10th Sponsored by Kelly’s Pharmacy Abbeyside
Small School Heats on Thursday 10th  May 
 We had a great night last Thursday night at the big school heats.  We started bang on 6.30 and all seventy five races were run off in less than two hours.  As the weather forecast for this week is good with some light showers expected on Thursday we will be hoping for another dry night for the small school heats. With even more races to be run this week we will start lining up for the sprints @6.15. Parking in the grounds of the school will be limited and on a first come first in basis so we urge everyone to arrive early and give the younger children a chance to settle in before they run. We ask all parents to obey the instructions of the stewards with regard to parking to keep the area safe for everyone.
Presentation of Prizes for Club Championships
The club championships were run off much earlier this year being held over two Wednesday nights in April. Everyone had to run a sprint, long distance race, throw and jump. In all 78 athletes took part in the events over the two nights competition was keenest in the under 9 girls and under 12 boys both events having the highest number of competitors. Those who missed last weeks prize giving can collect your trophies after training on Wed night.
