Once again a depleted but highly spirited Limerick AC Team competed in Round 2 of National Senior League at a very warm and humid Athlone IT Track on Sunday 22 June 2014 .
Despite been severly depleted in personnel – the men of Limerick AC performed heroically throughout the day covering 16 events .
Led by Captain Roland Pika ( 100m , Long Jump , High Jump , 4 X 100m & 4 x 400m relays ) and ably assisted by Jack Broderick ( 110m H , 400m H , 56lbs for distance, 4 X 100m & 4 x 400m relays ) , Kevin Coleman ( 400m, 800m , 4 X 100m & 4 x 400m relays ) , Danny Ikeh ( 200m, Shot Putt , 4 X 100m & 4 x 400m relays ) , Niall Counihan ( Triple Jump) , Eoin O Donoghue ( Javelin ) & Vereran Pat Murphy ( Hammer & Discus) .
Our best results on the day were Niall 2nd. in Triple Jump with 13.81m ( he jumped very consisently throughout the day ) – only beaten on last jump and young Eoin in Javelin who achieved a PB with the heavier Javelin .
Great Credit is due to these Athletes who compted in numerous events – some for the first time – they fought bravely and never gave up .
On the Day we scored 89 points – overall we finished 14th. over the 2 rounds .
