Mary Peters Success and Junior End of Season Party

Meet 3 Fermus Energy Super 6 Series 2016

NAC_Juniors_Mary_Peters_June_2016It was a  lovely warm evening down at the Mary Peters track for three Newcastle athletes attending Meet 3 of the Firmus Energy Super 6 Series.  Alex Johnston, Ciara Savage and Alana Lyons were all new to 70m Hurdles and Shot Putt events.  They did extremely well for first timers at the hurdles with Alex coming in with a super time of 15.19s followed by Ciara at  17.52s and  then Alana with 19.03s.  Next was the Shot Putt. Keen to give it a go, Alana showed signs that this is an event that she likes and has some definite skill,  throwing an impressive 4.34m and Ciara close behind throwing 3.43m.  Alex did a superb job supporting her teammates. Well done girls (see attached photo).

Toscano End of Season Party

Thanks to all who have already paid their money for our end of season party in the Toscano Pizzeria on Monday 20th June at 7pm. It’s good to see so many interested and it promises to be a nice evening chatting with fellow athletes.   This Monday 13th is the last opportunity to pay your £5 if you would like to attend.  Many thanks to Averil for organising and collecting all monies.  Averil will be outside the main door of Shimna College again this Monday night at 8pm to collect any outstanding monies.  We will also be collecting donations for our coaches / volunteers – this is an opportunity to show your appreciation for all the hard work they have put into making our club such a success.

Please note – this Monday 13th is the last night of training at Shimna till September.  Please keep a regular check on the Junior Events section of our website for details of any upcoming races and events.
