New Irish Youth Record

Since 2014 the Irish youth girls record in high jump  stood at 1.76 and in  the space of one week it went to 1.78 in Glasgow and at AAI Games in Dublin Sunday its gone to 1.80m . The reason Sommer Lecky who has got 2017 off to a positive start with her coach Niall Wilkinson. In 2016 she nailed the national senior title at 16 yrs old an acheivment in itself and had a great outing at the Tailteann Games and was on board in Georgia for European youth champs . So to 2017 where the target is Commonwealth Youth Games in Bahamas and European junior champs at Grosseto , Italy and we are only into February and both Q marks are ticked off as she plans to climb higher . The young Castlederg girl came along many moons ago to the Finn Valley annual primary school athletics  as an u 7 with her Dad winning the 60m and this exciting career kicked off from there for the Finn Valley ac athlete .
