St. Paul’s AC

Well done to Emma Owens who was our sole athlete in the National Senior Track and Field Championships in Santry, where she finished 7th in the Discus. Emma will now focus on securing top points for the Wexford Women’s National League team in 2 weeks time.

At the recent County Senior T&F championships, we had 7 athletes compete in multiple disciplines. Denise Wickham was in fine form winning both 100m and 200m races as well as picking up a silver medal in the High Jump. Shane Connick ran a great 800m to finish 2nd. He also finished 3rd in the shot Put, where fellow club mate Kieran Murphy also competed, earning a silver medal. Jaro Sumec and David O’Neill also took to the track, running well in the 1500m and 3000m respectively. Paul Connick ran in the 100m, narrowly missing a medal finishing 4th. Peter Connick ran well in the 400m although saved his energy for the highly anticipated relays. On the first night of the championships the 4×100 team of Shane, Kieran, Peter and Jaro unluckily missed out on 3rd place, just beaten at the line. Directly after, the 4×400 team of Shane, Peter, David and Jaro ran gallantly to earn themselves a bronze medal. After a week of hard training, strategy talks, run offs and a reshuffle of the teams, on the second night of championships the 4×100 team (Shane Kieran, David and Paul) pulled off a fantastic performance to finish 3rd. The 4×400 team (Peter, Shane, Kieran and David) although ran well, finished outside the top 3. Well done to all!
