West Waterford Athletic Club Juvenile Notes
We are all set to Go for  The Primary School Sports     
On Thursday May 2nd  it will be the turn of the primary schools athletes to take to the track. Arrangements are now complete for the first session of the sports for big schools which will get under way at 6 .30pm sharp. Parents and teachers should arrive early, as line up for the sprints will start at 6.15pm. Parking inside the grounds will be limited as we cannot use the hockey pitch and those who arrive late will have to park outside and walk in. If you are parking on the road please park in a sensible way to allow the free flow of traffic on the road. Parents with children in the younger age groups should be in the Friary before 6pm to allow time for parking and getting to the line-up area.  Every year we have one or two disappointed children who arrive in the field just after 6.30 to find they have missed their race. As there is such a large programme we will start on time. There is a large entry in these qualifying heats and all the young athletes will be attempting to qualify for the Western finals. We ask all parents, teachers and athletes to comply with the instruction of our stewards to ensure the safety of everyone. 
Great Days Athletics at Waterford Schools Championships
The first round of the schools championships took place in Waterford on Wednesday April 10th.  Numbers were up as there was a big turnout from all the schools in the count y and the standard of competition was good across all events. All the local schools took part and all were in the winners enclosure with athletes from Blackwater C.S., Meanscoil san Nioclas, Dungarvan CBS, Ardscoil na nDéise and St Augustine’s all among the medal winners.  Wednesday May 1st the girls will be in action again in Templemore where they will take park in the East Munster Schools with the first three in each event qualifying for the Munster Schools in C.I.T. later in the month.
Another Good Run for Angelina Chizhikova
Angelina Chizhikova was one of the few athletes to compete in Kilmacow last Sunday.  It was a very worthwhile trip for Angelina as she had a fine run to finish second in the girls under 15 700m. Well done Angelina.
