Today at the Mary Peters Track Casey Miskelly and Joel Chambers entertained the huge crowd with exhibitions of fearless front running to claim Co. Down 800m titles. Both pupils recorded new personal best times of 2.32 and 2.16 respectively! Special mentions also to Nicole Gill and Carter McIlvenny for competing in the Minor high jump and 800m respectively. This was Nicole's first taste of competition at this level and she acquitted herself very well with a 1.28m clearance. Although Carter found the initial pace extremely fast, he stuck gallantly at the task to battle up the homestraight in a time close to his personal best.
The Ulster Schools' Finals are on Saturday 20th May where Casey and Joel have set their marker as main protagonists for further medals.
