Leevale athletes were in fantastic form at the Munster U14-19 juvenile championships which took place in the CIT over the weekend. Leevale once again were the top club, taking a total of 18 Munster titles which included 2 championship best performances (CBP). There were 43 medal positions in total spread across the full range of events on offer.
The boys U15were in top form, accounting for 9 titles in total. Wymin Sivakumar completed an impressive triple when winning the triple jump, long jump and also the 80m hurdles where he led a Leevale clean sweep of the top 4 places. Robert Twomey completed a sprints double, winning both the 100m and 200m against stiff opposition. Tommy Connolly was equally impressive when completing an 800m/1500m double. Shane Aherne was a clear winner of the 250m hurdles. Wymin, Robert, Shane and Daniel Hurley combined to win the 4x100m title in a new CBP of 48.40s.
Reece Ademola was once again in record breaking form when setting a new CBP of 1.66m in the U14 high jump, bettering the mark previously held by Sam Healy. This was the 3rd Munster high jump record set by a Leevale athlete in this year’s Munster outdoor championships. Reece was also a comfortable winner of the long jump and anchored the 4x100m team to victory.
In addition, many Leevale athletes performed excellently when finishing just outside the medals.
