Cranford AC perform well at Donegal track and field championships

Thursday last saw Cranford make the short trip to the Danny McDaid Track in Letterkenny for the U12-U18 Donegal track and field championships.

First up were the Under 12 girls of Caoimhe Browne, Ciara Donnelly, Teresa Mullen, Orla Neely, Caoimhe Neely and Nazara McFadden with all the girls performing well.  Nazara and Teresa both ran very well in the 80m sprint with Teresa making it through to the final and just missed out on a medal. All the girls had a great run in the 600m with Nazara McFadden with the leading pack from the gun and came home with a bronze medal. Good to see Nazara back to such great form.

In the Under 12 boys Max Roarty took the lead from the start in the 600m and after an impressive run won a gold medal followed closely by Cian McMenamim and Conor Neely. All boys jumped well in the long jump and in the turbo javelin Conor threw over 16m to claim silver.

Our Under 14 girls had a good night with Aoife Giles winning gold in the shot putt and in the javelin threw over 24 metres to claim her second gold of the evening.  Caitlin O’Hara had a good run in the 800m in a strong field of girls.

The Under 14 boys of Oisin Kelly, Oran McMenamin, Liam Donnelly, Allan Neely, Killian Browne and Johnny Trearty took part in various events. Oisin won gold in the 800m with all the boys running very well in this event considering most of them were running a year out of their age. There were more medals within Oisin winning bronze in the long jump and Killian Browne winning silver in the turbo javelin.

Our only U16 girl was Molly Trearty who had a very good run in the 800m just missing out on a medal coming home in 4th place.

Thanks to coaches Eamon Giles, Ernie McElhinney and Rose Gavaghan and to all the parents who attended on the night.

Next up are the Ulster championships in June where we wish all our athletes the best of luck.
