Jai Jumps to victory in the All Ireland Schools Championships
In May, Jai Benson was crowned All Ireland Triple Jump champion (Junior Boys category) with a personal best of 11.66m in the first round. This is an outstanding achievement by an all-round sportsman, who was also a member of the team that made the final of the Darren Clarke golf competition and the victorious Year 10 soccer team. Jai made it a clean sweep for the season, beating the best competitors from all four provinces following his strong victories at both the South-Antrim District and Ulster Schools Championships earlier in the year.
