When I got to Santry, the first thing I saw was the track and the field. There was a big, grass field with a red track around it. There were nine lanes on the track. Te first races were sprints. Our school got quite a few medals in the sprints. Before the sprints, there was a big parade with all the schools that were taking part in races. After all the sprints came the relays. Under 10 girls came fifth and and the under 10 boys came third. Even though our school did well, we didn’t do well enough to get a trophy. We just got medals.

Today, we went to Santry and I did the relays with Matthew Reen, T.J. and Fintan. We came third. Fintan was the sprinter. He came 2nd in the heats and forgot where he came i n the final. The team behind us won two trophies and loads of medals. Our U13 boys came second and U12s came third. On the way back, Matthew, Fintan and I were playing a game!
