 St. Paul’s AC

Congratulations to all athletes who have been competing for St. Paul’s over the past weeks. Everyone from our juveniles through to seniors have been performing well and the winter training has really paid off. The past weekend has been very busy with both Leinster and national competition. In the Leinster Junior’s Kieran Murphy won the hammer while in the U12 championship Gergely Pap won the Shot putt and Maeve Hayes brought home a silver medal from the high jump. These results are well deserved from these improving athletes. Meanwhile Emma Owens and Denise Wickham helped the Wexford Ladies team to go forward to the next round of the National League in first place in Division one while Shane Connick helped the Men’s team to 11th overall. With a strong performance in round two the men’s team are also capable of progressing to the final in August. It’s great to see so many of our younger athletes progressing competitively hopefully this success will continue over the coming weeks. Training continues and hopefully the next few weeks will see lots of runs in the sun
