Caherleaheen Wins Tralee Primary Schools Athletics Trophy. Wins Tralee Primary Schools Athletics Trophy.

Congratulations to all our young athletes who participated in the Tralee Primary Schools event which was hosted by Tralee Harriers, last Thursday evening. Every single child competed whole-heartedly and many won medals in their individual races. We secured some stunning wins, overcame disappointment, celebrated each other and ultimately never gave up. As you can see in photo above, we won 6 medals in the 6 relay events () : 3 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronze. All the subs were on standby and we needed them on the night due to injuries. What a fantastic result, when one considers the various challenges which they faced on the night! Here are some pics, with more to follow when the children return to school with their treasure-trove of silverware. This is our 3rd successive year winning the trophy, since its inception three years ago. We won by 6 points…..a very tight, fist-clenching battle! Our school has participated for over 14 years and the children never fail to give it 110%. Sincere thanks to Tralee Harriers for hosting this annual event. It has become a really important fixture in our sporting calendar. Thank you all for being so supportive of each other and let’s hope our medal winners will keep the momentum going as they prepare to represent Caherleaheen at the upcoming Kerry Schools Finals in An Ríocht, Castleisland (Date to be confirmed). Many thanks to Brian Sargent for the video above.
