Leevale juvenile athletes travelled to Waterford over the weekend to compete in the Munster Juvenile T&F Championships. There were great performances by all the athletes who travelled.
Jack Murphy knocked over a second off the BU18 110m hurdles record with an impressive 14.58.
On Day 2 of the championships, Robert Twomey & Conor Morey completed magnificent sprint doubles by both adding the short sprint titles to the 200m titles they had won on Day 1. Rob’s time of 9.98s for the BU14 80m was a new championship best performance. Conor’s time of 11.70s for the BU15 100m was also inside the championship best, however the following wind was marginally over the legal limit allowed.
The high jumpers reached new heights with Molly Healy producing a PB of 1.60m to win gold in the girls U17 event. Cian O’Brien won gold in the BU18 event, clearing 1.75m while Tommy Connolly rounded off what was a great Munster Championships for the high jumpers by claiming bronze in the U14 event with a PB of 1.55m.
Kaitlyn Coffey secured silver in a very competitive 800m. Daniel O’Mahony and John Forde won silver in their long hurdles events. Also securing a place at the All Ireland’s was Aishat Onilogbo with a 4th place finish in the GU15 100m.
Well done to all who competed today.
