Huge crowds and balmy weather were the order of the day for the Dublin Relays this week.
First up on Wednesday were the Girls U12, Boys U12 and Girls U14 teams.
The Girls U12 Team A (Sophie, Sarah, Ava, Ella) won their heat and progressed to the final while Team B (Sophie, Emma, Nikita, Liliya) had a great run to finish 6th in their heat. In the final, Team A ran faster again to claim the bronze medal and now progress to the All-Irelands in July.
The Boys U12 (Ozie, Charlie, Arthur, Akim) were 4th in their heat, narrowly missing out by only 0.50 seconds of making the final. The Girls U14 (Kate, Meabh, Isabelle, Marianne) finished 6th in their heat.
Friday saw the Boys U13 and Girls U13 teams. The Girls U13 (Anabel, Sophie, Aoife, Isabella) were first out and finished 6th in their heat. The Boys U13 had two teams, Team 1 (Ben, Jaden, Dylan, Keane) and Team 2 (Noah, Oscar, Ozie, Arthur). Team 1 came 3rd in their heat and qualified for the final while Team 2 finished 4th in their heat and narrowly missed the final. Team 1 were 7th in the final, great progress from the indoor season where they didn’t make the final.
