Rachel wins silver in Ulster event thumbnailRachel Brown: won silver in the Ulster Schools’ 1500m inter girls event. GB21Rachel P45

RACHEL Brown won silver in the 1,500 metres Inter Girls race at the recent 50th Ulster Schools' Championships at Antrim Forum Stadium!
The Ballymena Academy ace lost out by ONE second on taking gold in what was one of the most exciting races of the day.
Rachel qualified previously at the District 'C' Championships in both the 800m and the 1500m but forced by the Ulster timetable of events to choose between them on the day saw her line up in a highly competitive field for the 1500m Inter girls' race.
Only the 2nd 1500m track race of the season for Rachel and a further 5 second Personal Best (PB) which bodes well for the rest of the season.
Rachel will now represent Ballymena Academy at the All Ireland Athletic Championships in Tullamore County Offaly on June 3.
Thanks go to her coach Pauline Thom from Ballymena & Antrim Athletics Club.
