Munster Champions in Indoor Championships
Day 2 of the Munster Indoor Championships ended up being an excellent day for Moyne A.C where club records were broken, and great competitive action took place across the day in all disciplines. Today firmly marked the return to athletes as the atmosphere throughout the day was electric!!
Moyne got off to a great start with Ber Spillane kicking things off in the first of 3 of her events on the day in the Masters 400mts. Ber won in good fashion in a time of 1.09.16. Ber then took the blocks for the 60m where a dip to the line saw her clinch the sliver in 9.14. She then concluded her day in the 200m where she clocked 31.39 and won the title! Well done, Ber.
Leona Maher clocked 8.52 in the Junior 60m. Then we had Katie Bergin who ran a superb heat in the 60m running a pb and bringing down the club record to 7.89! Katie then finished 5th in the final in 7.94 to win the Munster U/23 title. She was back soon after for the 200 where she ran 25.82 to win a second Munster U/23 title, another good run going in the right direction.
Sharon Cantwell, Lisa Quinlan, and Aisling Maher competed in the 1,500m which turned out to be a very competitive event. Sharon gave a good performance in finishing 3rd in the senior category in 5.11.37. In addition, Sharon competed in the 3000m on Saturday where she again finished 3rd in a time of 11:20.32. Lisa and Aisling finished in close order in a time 5.42.31 and 5.42.85.
Last event on the track for the girls was the 4x 200m relay often the highlight of the day. Leona Maher, Sharon Cantwell, Lucy Doyle, and Katie Bergin teamed up and gave a very good performance in coming away winners of the Senior event in a swift time of 1.55.36, great effort by all four girls!
We would like to thank all the officials and Nenagh Olympic for all their efforts throughout the weekend, to which the athletes are extremely grateful for.
