Belvedere came out on top in Tullamore! 

In the Junior (U15s) boys, Belvedere were the third best school with contributions from Louis Gaughan (RDF) who came 4th in the Triple Jump and Long Jump. Matthew Flood (RDL) was 2nd in the Hammer, while Darragh Kavanagh  (RDL) was 5th in the Walk.

In Intermediate (U17s), Conor Flanagan (GK) was our sole medalist in the Pole Vault. Other notable achievements: Daniel Magner (GS) and Darragh Doran (SX) were 7th and 8th respectively in the Triple Jump; Morgan Brennan (GK) and Eoghan Rutledge (SL) were 4th and 5th in the Discus; Scot Meaney (SX) was 8th in the Long Jump; Morgan Brennan (GK) took 4th in the Hammer while Cathal Dunne (GK) picked up 5th; Bill Costello (GS) was 5th in the Walk. All of these contributions led to an overall national U17 title.

In the Senior (U19s) after a two year drought, the quest for the College of Science Senior Champions 2019 began. In the Steeplechase, Daniel Stone (PA) was 2nd while John Fanning (SX) was 5th; Daniel Stone returned later to finish 6th in the 1500m; Ben Guiden (RA) was an impressive 7th in the 5K; Augustyn Tchorzewski (RA) was 3rd in the Triple Jump and 7th in the Long Jump; Eoghan Conway (PA) picked up a 6th in the Triple Jump; Eoghan Murphy was 6th in the Discus while Liam Connaughton (RA), who unluckily picked up an injury in the Javelin, still managed 7th place; Hugh Flood (PF) was 4th in the Hammer ,while Scott Kane (PK) picked up a solid 5th in the Walk.

All of these contributions gave Belvedere the overall win, the best school at U19 level in Ireland in 2019.
