Leevale athlete, Clare McSweeney, has been in great form recently on the US colleges Track & Field circuit. Clare, who is a graduate student at the California University of Pennsylvania (CUP), last week set a new university record for the outdoor 800m of 2:10.13 at Jesse Owens Classic in Ohio. This achievement came on the back of a string of good recent performances, and last week she was named Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Track Athlete of the Week, her third time winning the award!
She followed her record-breaking performance with a comfortable win at the Lock Haven Qualifier in Pennsylvania on Saturday, just a second outside her previous best.
