Leinster Junior Metro 2016 Report
The 2016 Leinster Junior Metro saw another strong field contest the main events. With 26 entries into the Junior boys there was strength in depth in this category. Similarly, 22 entries in the cadet boys made for a strong event. Alan Pattison took away first prize in the Juniors, and Dillon Byrne took first in the cadets.
In the U-13 boys there was another tense battle between Gellert Moracscik from Carlow TTC, and Mattiu Heckmann from Dublin. On this occasion, Gellert turned the tables on Mattiu. So now it is one apiece in this battle for the top ranking spot in the U-13 boys. Fionn, Josh and Niks continue to impress in U-11’s with Fionn earning an invitation to the Leinster squad camp on Novermber 13th.
Pravesha Ragi continues to impress in the U-13 and U-15 girls’ sections, taking home top honours in both. Nga Nguyen and Grainne O’Rourke from Dun Laoire TCC fought for the first prize in the U-18 girls, with Nga coming out on top.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped to make the event a success, including committee members, Henrik in the shop, Maria, James, Con and the team of umpires running the competitions, Ray for supplying the trophies, and all who helped set up the hall and tidy up afterwards. These events can’t happen without this effort.
The next event on January 8th is building up to be even more fun than this one and will be a great opportunity to get back into the swing of things after the Christmas break. We look forward to seeing you all there.
