Avril Deegan wins Gold whilst setting a new Personal Best
A huge congratulations to Avril Deegan on her recent success in achieving a brilliant podium double at the prestigious All-Ireland Schools Track & Field championship in Tullamore on June 3rd. Representing her school, Presentation Thurles, Avril is now the Senior girls champion over 3000m winning gold in a tactical race in a good personal best time of 10:15. In the 1500m Avril ran 4:41 to claim bronze. A fantastic achievement to close out Avrils School Athletics. No let up for Avril yet as immediately after her Leaving Certificate the Club U20 Leinster & All-Ireland Championships takes place. Well done and continued success to Avril in the year ahead.
