West Waterford Athletic Club Juvenile Notes.
Elverys Intersport Winter League Concludes.
After six very successful weeks of running the Elverys Intersport Juvenile Winter League will conclude on Wednesday next with the running of the handicap race when all athletes will run off their fastest times with prizes for the first two athletes across the line, so there is still a chance to win a prize ! The standard in the league has been very high this year with many athletes recording personal best times and every athlete going under 10 mins during the course of the six weeks.
 Storm Diane did her best to interrupt proceedings last Wednesday despite it being a miserable day 62 hardy athletes turned up to compete and  some even recorded their best times to date. Sophie Landers broke the 8 minute barrier for the first time this season and Eoin Prendergast knocked a further sixteen seconds off his best time in the league. The winning teams will be announced next Wednesday. When all athletes have completed the course we will have the prize giving and Eunice Power will be in attendance to present the Power Family Cup to the captain of the winning team.

 Credit Union Athletic Award for Lucy Holmes
The November winner of the Combined Credit Union Athletic Award is West Waterford’s Lucy Holmes. Lucy placed third in the girls under 18 race at the All Ireland Championships and this was the best placed finish of any Waterford athlete on the day. Lucy was the first Munster athlete across the line and led Munster to second place in the Inter Provincial contest and Waterford to second place in the inter county contest. Lucy has had a very good cross country season to date finishing in the top three in both the under 17 and 18 races in the Munster Championships. Later this month Lucy will compete in the All Ireland under 17 championships in Navan where she will again be in the shakeup for individual honours.
