Lucy McGlynn and Sommer Lecky impressed at the Belfast International Meet on Saturday.

At the Mary Peter’s Track, McGlynn and Lecky led the way for Donegal athletes to continue good form.

Tir Chonaill AC’s McGlynn won the 400m hurdles in a new personal best.

McGlynn sped home in an impressive 60.86 seconds to eclipse her previous fastest time.

Laura Frey was second in 62.32 seconds with Erin McMahon third in 67.05 seconds.

Lecky arched over the bar at 1.83m to win the women’s high jump.

The Finn Valley AC star, a former World U20 silver and Commonwealth Youth Games gold medalist, is inching close to the 1.86m Commonwealth Games qualifying mark.

Lecky’s 1.83m was a season’s best for the Castlederg woman, improving on a 1.80m jump in France the previous weekend.

Lifford-Strabane AC’s Harriet McCrossan won a U20 100m in 12.65 seconds while Finn Valley AC’s Sean McGinley took third in a 1500m.

Sophie Parlour of Olympian YAC won a U20 200m in 25.49 seconds - a new PB - and was second in another U20 100m.

Lauren Callaghan of Finn Valley AC won the women’s long jump, with a best leap of 5.92m.
