Scottish Indoor Athletics Championships 2019

Congratulations to Grosvenor pupil Jenna Breen, Year Eleven, who was recently selected to compete at the prestigious ‘Scottish Athletics National Senior and Under 17 Indoor Championships', held at Emirates Arena, Glasgow, on Saturday 26th January.

Jenna, who achieved silver medals in both the Junior Girls 100 and 200 metre sprint events at last summer’s Irish Schools’ Championships, placed fourth in the Under 17 girls 200 metres event in Glasgow – a particularly impressive result given the high standard of opposition, as well as the fact that she was competing primarily against athletes a year older than herself.

Jenna’s finishing time of 25.71 seconds in the final, after previously running heats and a semi-final, was particularly impressive; the event as a whole provided her with great experience which will prove invaluable as she now prepares for the Northern Ireland and Ulster Indoor Championships, which are due to take place over the weekend of Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th February.
