The future of athletics in Co Wexford is in very safe hands if the exploits of one young Enniscorthy girl are anything to go by.

Kara Morrissey, who is a member of the Menapians Athletic Club, took home a silver medal in the U13 long jump event at the Leinster Championships which were held in the Athlone IT indoor sports arena.

What makes Kara's achievement all the more noteworthy is the fact it was her first time competing in the event.

Her silver medal placing also meant she qualified for the all-Ireland finals which will take place on March 30.
