WIT 5K race results

ruadhri and WAC
Another successful annual WIT AC 5K supporting athletics in Waterford in association with Waterford AC took place on Friday April 4th with Sandis Bralitis of WWAC winning the mens race in 15 mins 31 sec from our own Trevor Power just 2 seconds back and Marie McCarthy leading home the ladies in 17mins 53 sec with our own Slyvia Malone coming home in second place.

Thanks to WIT for providing the facilities for the race and great to see WIT president Ruadhri Neavyn in attendance to act as offical race starter and who took the time to congratulate Andy Connick and all his helpers from WIT AC (pictured below) on such a great display of participation. Next week here in Waterford sees these WIT student athletes represent Waterford in the national T&F universites championships at the RSC on Friday and Saturday so why not pop along to watch top class athletes on your doorstep.  Waterford AC juvenile members will be assisting with medal presentations and call room duties as well as Start and Finish assistance so a great opportunity for our juvenile members to see first hand what serious athletics is all about. No admission fee to RSC and action is between 2 and 7pm on Friday and 10 and 4pm on Saturday.   
happy helpers

WAC committe members of Club Chairman Kieran Leahy, Club Secretary Kieran O'Mahoney and Club Captain Diane Behan were all on hand on the evening to help out on behalf of WAC and Ruadhri Neavyn was impressed to see such great support for the work both WAC and WIT AC are doing for the development of athletics in Waterford.
  
Thanks as always to Club and County PRO Fintan Walsh on his great job of MC in getting the information to us all on the night of what we needed to do get get parked, checked in and to the start in good time.

Medals at Munster U14 to U19 indoor championships

With two days of competition in Nenagh for the munster Juvenile indoor T&F championships WAC had a 20 strong team of athletes entered and came away with 9 medals. 

Our race walkers were to the fore with Emma Caulfield winning Gold in U14 walk, Ruth Heery and Orla O'Connor 2nd and 3rd in U15 and Hannah Jacobs and Hannah Cawley 2nd and 3rd respectively in the U16 race walk. Anna O'Connor and Emma O'Brien were both 4th in their race walk and narrowly missed qualifying for the all Ielands as a result.

Grace Furlong did a PB in the girls U17 high jump to win Bronze as did James Murphy with a PB in the U15 high jump and added bronze in his long jump also.

Lance Baylon had an excellent 3rd in the boys u15 60m sprint in his first championship for the club.

The oldest record to fall over the weekend of Munster U14 to U/19 Indoor Championships was WAC coach David Murphy's 1994 record of 13.32m in the Boys U/18 Triple Jump which was broken by Darren Prout, Carrick-On-Suir A.C. with his jump of 13.37m. Both David & Darren are pictured above after the competition


Munster Squad session at RSC

A great day was had with seven of our race walkers taking part in the third of four munster squad sessions on Sunday. It was a pleasant change for our team having this on our doorstep rather than having to travel on this occassion.

walkers week 3

A full session from 10 till after 1 was had and all benefited hugely from the exchange of information from coaches, parents and athletes themselves. Date for the final session to be announced and best of luck to all thesee walkers in the Munster Championships coming up on Sat/Sun March 1st & 2nd.
