Leevale 1-2-3 in South Munster Schools 3,000m

The first stage of the South Munster schools track and field championships were held in the grounds of Midleton CBS today in bright sunny conditions.  A restricted programme, consisting of long and triple jumps, discus and javelin, together with the 3,000m races, made up the brief session.  One of the leading young road runners in the county, James Grufferty of Bruce College and Leevale, is also fast becoming one of the leading track runners in Cork.  In the senior 3,000m he took the lead at the gun, and upped the pace after two laps.  From there on he moved further away from the other runners to record a very convincing win from clubmates Alan 
Foolkes of North Mon and Thomas Kennefick of Colaiste Choilm Ballincollig.
