Munster Juvenile Pentathlon Championships

A small group of Leevale athletes traveled to the Munster Juvenile combined events championships also held in Templemore on Monday.

Leevale were very well represented in the girls U12 event where Jessica Lyne finished in an excellent 3rd place in a very competitive pentathlon. Jessica’s performance included an impressive clearance of 1.30m in the high jump. Also in the U12 pentathlon Nicole Clarke and Kate Naughton performed very well, both coming away with several personal bests.

In the boys U15 pentathlon, Tommy Connolly followed solid performances in the hurdles, high jump, long jump and shot events with a dominant performance in the 800m to elevate himself into 3rd place overall.
