National Track & Field League Final

 

Well done to Lorraine Healy who represented Tipperary in the 1,500mts at the finals of the National Track and Field League. Lorraine once again acquitted herself well with a sixth place finish in a time of 5.09.08 having come up against some of the top 1,500mts runners in the Country. The points Lorraine earned helped Tipperary to finish 7th overall in the Premier Division of the ladies section. Congratulations to all involved and indeed to our County men’s team who finished an excellent third in their Premier Division section.

Boston Scientific Half Marathon

Two athletes, Sharon Kiely and Catherine Dunne, travelled to Clonmel on Sunday to take part in the Boston Scientific Half Marathon. Sharon posted a time of 1.48.29 for the 13.1 mile event while Catherine crossed the line in 2.10.11. Two great times. Well done girls on your achievements.

Munster “B” Track & Field Championships

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our four athletes who travelled to Templemore on Saturday last for the Munster “B” Track & Field Championships gave it their all on the track and on the field returning with one gold and one silver medal both won by Dylan McLoughlin.   It was Dylan who was again the star of the show winning the Boys U/16 800mts with a great display of front running, crossing the line in 2.16.01 just a couple of seconds outside his pb. He also took part in the U/16 Long Jump and despite some technical difficulties still came away with a silver medal leaping 4.39mts to finish second.  First into action on the day was Sean Boland who competed in the Boys U/10 Long Jump.  In a very competitive event he had three fine jumps, the best of which was 3.16mts and this saw him finish in 8th place overall.  Then came Alana Spillane in the Girls U/10 500mts where she kept pace with the leaders throughout only to be run out of the medals in the final 80mts to finish 7th overall in a time of 1.47.65.  Our final athlete to compete on the day was Saoirse Doran, who despite a nasty foot injury, put it all behind her to run a superbly contested race.  In with a great shout of a medal throughout the race she fought gamely to the line to finish 6th overall in 2.07.20.  Well done to all four athletes on being a credit to their families and the club.

National Track & Field League

Lorraine Healy once again represented Tipperary in the National Track & Field League with the second round held in Templemore on Sunday.  Selected to compete in the 1,500mts she produced a great performance to finish 5th overall and more importantly 3rd in the Premier Division for Tipperary in a new personal best time of 5.06.  The points earned certainly helped the Tipperary cause on the day.  Well done Lorraine.
