The Leitrim Athletics U9 to 11 Team Finals were held at the Atlantic Technological University in Sligo last Wednesday with some great competition at the very youngest level of competitive athletics open to clubs. 

The top three teams, which are made up of two athletes whose combined score determines the medals, qualify for the Connacht Team Finals, also held in Sligo, on Saturday, June 11.

In other athletics news, Eanna Madden opened up his 2022 outdoor season last Saturday with a third place finish over 400m in a time of 47.69 at the Belfast Irish Milers Meet.
