After a successful cross country season, Joel made a big statement of intention for what may lie ahead, with a convincing win to take the Ulster Schools' 1500m title in the Junior Boys category. Joel displayed great tactical acumen to kick for home with 250m remaining to leave his main rival in his wake.. His time of 4.24 mins was a new personal best performance and it sets him up nicely to challenge for success in the Irish Schools' Finals in two weeks.
Casey Miskelly started athletics as a middle distance athlete and now she has gradually moved down through the distances to be competing in the sprints and hurdles. She competed in the 75m hurdles and gained very valuable experience for the future.
Well done to both pupils.
