Leevale U15-U19 athletes competed in the Munster Juvenile Championships over the weekend at the CIT track. Conditions on Saturday were wet and miserable, however this did not dampen the spirits of the athletes who recorded some very good times. Unfortunately for Edmond O’Halloran in the 100m Hurdles, Chris Murnane and David Quilligan in the 200m, an illegal wind meant their championship best times will not be recorded. Kate Humphries once again ran a very strong 200m to take first place.
The sun shone on Sunday and the performances continued. Kate Humphries comfortably won the GU17 300m Hurdles, while Edmond O Halloran and Patrick Maher have now taken their sprint hurdle dual to the 300m hurdle event. On this occasion Patrick came away with the win. Cathal Owens dropped the 400m this weekend in favour of the 100m & 200m. In both events he finished a close second to his clubmate David Quilligan. David also won the long jump taking his gold medal tally to three.
Eric Stam, Daire Walsh and Sean Fogarty, the U15 multievent specialists, competed in a range of track and field event over the two days. Eric won four events and finished second in two, while Daire Walsh won the shot putt and secured two second place finishes.
Well done to all the Leevale athletes who have qualified for the national championships. We are now looking forward to a productive visit to Antrim in two weeks time.
