Nine athetes took part on Saturday in CIT on the first day of U9-13 Munster championships.
First up was Lily Reed in the U9 300m and 60m, competing in her first Munsters, where she competed well in both events. Next we had Ellen Hosey in the Turbo Javelin and 500m where she PB in both events 9.77m and 1:40 respectively.
In the U11 600m we had a strong field of 4 athletes going to post Sarah Meade, Laura Southern, Aoife Ryan and Meadhbh Hurley all performed well and provided great excitement for parents and coaches.
Sarah and Laura joined forces with Molly Quirke later in the day in the 60m where the team was strong enough for an 8th place finish in a hugely competitive event. In Molly’s favourite event the long jump, she produced another classy performance with a PB of 3:52m, good enough for 6th in Munster.
Our last two athletes, Leagh Moloney and Yanna Leahy, produced the performances on the day, in the 60m and long jump. In the 60m they produced a silver medal team performance, with Leagh’s 9:45sec, the 4th fastest individual time on the day. They also got the team silver in the long jump with jumps of 3:58m from Leagh and 3:53m from Yanna. Leagh’s leap was good enough to secure the individual silver medal.
Congratulations to all our young athletes we are all very proud of you.
