Ciara and Dannan travel to Derby for Schools T&F

Two Wexford athletes competed at the SIAB Track and Field Championships which took place last Saturday in Derbyshire, England. Ciara Mooney of St Mary’s, New Ross competed in the walk, while Dannan Long of FCJ Bunclody ran the 200m and the relay. Both athletes missed out on a podium place but still gave a good account of themselves.This annual schools event attracts the top young (under 17) athletes from England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Simply making the team is an achievement. And the experience that athletes gain in competing at this level is invaluable.
