Pupils from the area produced impressive results recently across the Schools’ Athletics Championships programme.

Antrim Forum meetings led to progress for Lismore Comprehensive, Craigavon Senior High School and Lurgan Junior High School.

Lismore’s Holly Mulholland finished second in the junior girls’ 75-metre hurdles with a time of 12.64 seconds.

As a result, she will now tackle the All-Ireland Schools’ Athletics Championships boosted by Ulster silver success.

Jack McNeill from Craigavon Senior High School registered a personal best in the Ulster intermediate boys’ high jump.

He clocked up 1.86 metres on the way to silver glory and a spot in the Irish finals on Saturday, May 30.
