The pre-Louth Championships held in Bush Dundalk on Sunday last is a precursor for the annual Louth Athletics championships, allowing athletics and coaches to assess their form before the major championships in a few weeks time.

Ace AC had some fine performances from young athletes with u15 athlete Nayia Semple stealing the show with three bronze medals in the 800m, the sprint and the longjump. U12 athlete Caoimhe Carolan wasn't far behind Nayia as star performer and continued her fine form with 2 medals, a bronze in the sprint and a brilliant silver in the 600m.

Leinster Champions Chloe Cooney & Sholah Lawernce both secured comfortable golds in the u16 and u17 800m with Ciara O'Connor strong in second. Ciara had earlier won the 100m with Kate Culhanne in 3rd securing bronze.
