Dromore HS pupils have had a successful end to the school year, bringing home 12 medals from the Ulster Championships, including two golds.

The two first places came from the Discus event. The talented Caitlin Allen-Collins, who won the U15 group, and Robin Cantley, who came out top in the U16 category.

The ‘Age Groups’ are the provincial Championships for athletes involved in athletics both in clubs and schools.

Antrim Forum and Mary Peters Track venues were used over the weekends of 7-8 and 14-15 June. Pupils from Dromore HS represented Dromore AC, North Down AC and, of course, the school.

Success followed with a total of 12 medals across both track and field events.
