Jacqueline gets gold

06 June 2014

IMG 2351-webOn Saturday 31st May, Cookstown High School pupil Jacqueline Burns took part in the All Ireland Athletics Championships in Tullamore. Here, she took part alongside all of Ireland’s top athletes.

Jacqueline competed in her fourth Irish Schools competition in the Javelin, this year representing at senior level for the first time. Jacqueline was a year young for this age group so we were delighted when she threw a series of impressive throws. Her longest throw of 36 metres 45cm was enough to secure her way into 1st place. Jacqueline returned home to with a Gold Medal to display alongside her other silver and gold Irish medals from previous years. Jacqueline will undoubtedly prove strong opposition once again next season.

Well done to Jacqueline on this fantastic achievement.
