There was another excellent weekend for Fermanagh athletes, who won no fewer than 15 medals at the Ulster/ NI Age Group Championships, at a cool and windy Antrim Forum over Saturday and Sunday, with 13 of those going to St Michael’s athletes.

Local athletes have been enjoying a wonderful time on the track and in the field in recent week’s and that continued again.

Gold medals for St. Michael’s arrived from Oisin McGuinness in the U14 80m, Jack O’Connor - fresh from his Irish title success last week - in the U15 100m and 200m, Frank Buchanan in the U17 1500m and Oisin Cassidy in the U20 800m.

And it was not just St. Michael’s athletes who were returning home with gold medals as Enniskillen Running Club’s Annabelle Morrison claimed the win in the U17 3000m in a new personal best time while Tempo’s Ben Warnock, running for Monaghan Phoenix, edged out St. Michael’s Frank Buchanan by centimetres to clinch the U17 800m crown.

Oisin McGuinness (200m), Frank Buchanan (800m), Charlie Reihill (U16 1500m) and Deivs Tarvids (U14 Long Jump) all took silver medals in Antrim while there were bronze medals for Luchra McBrien ( U14 80m and 200m), Oisin Travers (U15 200m) and Tiarnan McManus (U16 3000m).

Harry McKenzie of Enniskillen Running Club took two fourth places in the U15 800m and 1500m, the latter in a big personal best while there were also positive performances by St Michael’s athletes Daithi McLaughlin, Oisin Donohue, Tom McMahon, James Kelly, Lorcan Fitzpatrick, Conor Rooney as well as Wiktor Wojthowski and Aoibhan Kelly of ERC who all competed well, with several reaching finals and all gaining valuable experience in championship competition

The medals winners have the opportunity to compete at the national championships in a few weeks time as a hugely successful season for local junior athletes moves towards its conclusion.
