Secondary title for Emma

Hundreds of young athletes from the Meath area secondary schools took part in the Meath Athletics Board schools track and field championships at Claremont stadium last Friday. The event increases in popularity each year and is a good indicator of perfomance and form in advance of the busy provincial school championship events during April and May.

Trim athletes representing their schools did well. Emma Foley cleared 1.45m for a win in the senior girls high jump, second spot went to club colleague Clare McLernon. In the senior girls 100m Emma claimed second place. The senior boys high jump brought out the jumping skills of all-rounder Shane Aston, better known for his throwing prowess (national and Leinster medallist) when he cleared 1.70m for a surprise second place. One of our younger athletes taking part in her first ever secondary schools championships Megan Smith finished third in the minor girls 1100 metres.
