Field on Track at County Novice

Updated: Results from Cork AAI

Stephen Field’s performance in the 100m was the highlight from a Leevale point of view at the County Novice & Masters T&F Championships, held last night in CIT. The Leevale man, a silver medallist in the 400m at Special Olympics in Shanghai last year, ran a superb PB of 12.5 to win a very competitive Novice 100m.

Also in action was Leevale’s other Shanghai star, Joe Nagle. Joe, who won events on each of his last two visits to CIT, continued his good form in winning both the discus and 56lb in the O35 section, and finishing 4th in the javelin. Should the AAI ever relax their restrictions on the number of events per athlete at the National League, Joe might one day cover all the field events for Leevale!

Frank Stam also competed in the Discus and Javelin in the Men’s O50 section, winning both, while back on the track Denis Metcalfe was in action in the Novice 800m, finishing 3rd. Overall, the fixture was well supported, and it was good to see a decent level of competition across most of the events on the night.
