IT WAS another sport-filled Sunday as Scanlon Park played host to the second round of the County Track and Field championships.

The day had more than 70 events for juvenile athletes, covering all levels from under-8 to under-19. There were some great individual performances with honours spread evenly between the clubs.

The star athlete of the day was St Joseph’s Aaron Fenlon who went home with five gold medals. Fenlon dominated the under-17 scene, standing on top of the podium after winning the 100m, 200m, 800m, long jump and javelin titles.

Gowran’s Ted Drea won three golds in the under-14 200m, long jump and walk while Ella Cusack was a double gold winner at under-8 level. Thomastown also had a triple gold winner with Michael Power taking top honours in the under-13 javelin, long jump and ball throw.

Jack Manning featured for Kilkenny City Harriers (KCH) and added three golds to his tally, putting in winning performances in the under-15 200m, javelin and long jump. There were double golds for Rachel Kelly in the under-12 500m and high jump, Ciara Deeley in the under-13 500m and high jump and for Aaron Barron in the under-16 200m and long jump, results which added to a successful meet for the city club.

St Senan’s showed their strength in depth with seven different athletes winning gold. Brow Rangers and Castlecomer will also be happy with the performance of their athletes who took home a number of golds while the smaller clubs, Nore Valley and St Kieran’s, also had gold medal winners.

The next round of the county championships will take place on Friday, May 25 at 6.45pm. It will feature events for junior, senior and masters athletes as well as juvenile events.
