County Road Master’s Championship
The County Road Master’s Championship were held in Clonmel this Sunday. The both the ladies and men had a 6k race and the club had only three competitors, all of whom competed in the men’s race. Stephen Flanagan was the first of our men to the tape finishing in 10th position. Stephen was followed home by Brian Carroll who placed in 18th position and Patrick Bowe who finished in 34th position. Well done to all three athletes.
Munster Junior & U23 Track and Field Championship
The club had two athletes compete in the Munster Junior and U23 Track and Field Championship in Templemore last Saturday. The day was dry and slightly blustery however both our athletes competed very well in their respective events.
Orla Healy was crowned Munster Champion in the 3000m where she ran a time of 11:35. This was Orla’s first time running in the U23 division and had a very impressive performance on her way to gold.
Dylan McLoughlin was also among the medals in his excellent performance in the Junior Men’s 800m. Dylan ran 2:11 on his way to the silver medal.
Congratulations to both athletes on their super performances.
Inter-Schools Track and Field
The inter-school’s Track and Field competition takes place this Friday at 10:30am. The competition will run until 2pm. Eight primary schools in the locality will compete in a selection of sprints, middle distance, long jump and ball-throwing events. Urlingford are the current Large Schools champions while Galmoy are the Small Schools champions but no doubt the other six schools will be out to claim these trophies.
