THE juvenile section of St Laurence O’Toole AC and Ardattin AC travelled in force to the Leinster indoor juvenile athletic championships in Athlone.
With some standout performances, the clubs really punched above their weight and must rate as one of the best county performances over the past number of years.
St Laurence O’Toole took home 11 gold, three silver and seven bronze medals. Alan Miley in the boys U19 was in top form, taking home three gold. Aaron Shorten coasted home in the 800m final with a time of 1.55.28.
Other outstanding performances to capture Leinster titles were Laila Callinan, Callum Shorten, Jennifer Sawyers, Kieran Cooper, Ciara Moore, Colin Kelly and Adam Nolan.
Ellie Garrigan was delighted when stepping up on the podium to collect bronze in the U12 long jump. Club athletes from Carlow performed really well in their events, some getting to the podium.
