West Waterford Athletic Club Juvenile news.
County Schools Championships a Great Success.
The county final was an exciting finale to a month of primary schools athletics. The best athletes from west Waterford, mid Waterford and the city competed against each other for the honour of being county champion. Western athletes figured strongly in all events. The trophies for the overall winners of each section of the Western Finals and the Nora Healy Trophy were presented on the night of the county final. West Waterford would like to extend their thanks to all the athletes, parents, committee member and senior club members who helped in the running of another very successful Primary School Sports. Our thanks also go to St Augustine’s College for the use of their facilities. A big thanks you to our sponsors Eurofins Food Testing (big schools) Joe Kelly’s Pharmacy (small schools) and Blackwater Catering (County Finals). Lots of photos of the event are on the West Waterford A.C. website.

All Ireland Silver for Ard Scoil’s Lucy Holmes.
There were several West Waterford athletes in action in the IrishLifeHealth All Ireland Schools Championships in Tullamore last weekend. As always competition was keen as only the top three in each of the provinces make it through to the finals. We had just one medal winner on the day Lucy Holmes who was representing Ard Scoil na nDéise . Lucy was running in the senior girls 800m. The race went off at a very fast pace and at the end of the first 400m Lucy was in 5th place moving down the back straight she began to close the gap on the three girls in front of her and she stormed up the home straight to take second place in a new personal best of 2.13.21.
Our only other competitor on the track was Cian O’Riordan representing Dungarvan CBS. Cian finished 8th in the senior boys 5000m in a time of 16.44.28 but he had the satisfaction of beating Nathan O’Leary who had finished ahead of him in the Munster Championships. Also representing Dungarvan CBS were the Mullarkey brothers. Paul in his first All Ireland finished 9th in the junior boys discus with a throw of 28.90 and Sean also finished 9th in the inter boys discus with a throw of 29.76. Sean also finished 8th in the shot with 10.33.
For the first time in many years St Augustine’s didn’t have a pole vaulter on the podium. Patrick Fitzgerald came closest finishing 4th in the senior boys with a jump of 3m80. Eoin Buenaventura moved up to the inter age group and finished 6th with 2m80 and was also 8th in the high jump with 1m65. Ciaran Buenaventura was 6th in the senior boys high jump with a jump of 1m85.

New Event Starting June 11th in Lismore
This year the clubs in West Waterford and East Cork have come together to organise a new event for athletes from under 9 to 16. The event will be held over two nights in June starting in Lismore on June 11th. There will be running jumping and throwing events in each age group and relays for all from all the west Waterford clubs participating. There will be points as well as medals awarded for the top three in each event and these will count for an overall trophy so lets make sure there is a big turn out from West Waterford on each of the two nights. This will be a good follow on from the county club championships and the primary school sports. It will be another step up for our young athletes as they seek to make the transition from county to Munster standard. Clubs competing for West Waterford Blackwater, Finisk Valley, KCK, Ardmore and West Waterford. Clubs competing for East Cork St Catherines, St Nicholas and Youghal AC
