The Connacht Schools Championships took place last Thursday in Athlone IT .  Weather conditions were wet and windy but despite this there were some brilliant performances on the day.  With only two qualifying places for the coveted National Fnals next month  in the sprint competitions  the stakes were high and this resulted in some great times being recorded on the day.
