Report on Leinster Indoor Championships W/End 7th+ 8th March. and Events for March, April, + May

The Leinster Indoor Championships were held over the w/end 7th + 8th of March in Athlone where Medals were at a premium, it would be fair to say that this fantast Stadium is enticing lots of hidden talented children and teenagers who up to now have not showing any interest in Athletics to join Clubs and saviour the delights of competing at this arena.  Championships and All Ireland records were set by new kids on the block over the two days on this fast track.

Competing for the Club were Caoimhe Murphy, Ellie O’ Toole, Aimee McGrath, Leah O’ Shea, Nikki O’ Neill, Grace O’Toole, Omasan Ayavoro, Keely Ryan, Ellen Hillard, Luke Morris, Kevin Kyne , Mark Glynn, Runo Ayavoro, Alex O’ Shea, Luke Walker Browning, James Devitt.

All our Athletes gave a 100% setting new P: B and overcoming various nick ling injuries, but if there was a medal for bravery and commitment it would have been awarded to Omasan Ayavoro who qualified for the final of the Girls U/14 60M after a heat and semi-final and finished 5th in the final with her arm encased in plaster weighting about 3kg what a girl. Runo her brother coasted into the final of the Boys U/13 60m and was crowned Leinster Champion crossing the line in a Usane Bolt stance.

Luke Walker Browning was fastest in the heats of the 600m but carrying an injury had to be satifyised with Silver in the Final hopefully he will be back to full fitness for the All Ireland, Grace O’ Toole decided to forego the track events and was rewarded with a Silver Medal in the Long/Jump.

Events For March, April, May, Sunday 15th March Round one of League Naas 2oc, Round two April 19th, Crookstown Open Sports April 12th,( March 22nd  + March 28th All Ireland Indoors,) ( Athletes from the Club competing on both Days ) County Kildare Track + Field Championships May 3th +10th+ 17th , May 23th Leinster Outdoors Relays.

As you may have noticed the Club are running a 5k on the Curragh on Saturday 14th this would be a good opportunity for some of our teenager’s members to sign up and treat it as a training run.

Junior + Juvenile Results Leinster Indoors 14th+15th February + ( Post on Leinster Juvenile Championships ( Day 3 + 4 ) 7th + 8th of March )

Four of our Athletes who compete at U/17 move up to get experience at Junior level on Sunday, with some great results,  Ellie O’ Toole surprised runners of National grade to win the 400m title in a time of 58.9 seconds. Mark Glynn also put in an 29sec last lap to pass older runners and take a well deserved Bronze medal in the Junior 800m. Aimee McGrath + Caoimhe Murphy competed in the Junior 800m final but in a very hot race finished out of the medals. Meanwhile on Saturday it was the Juveniles Championships medals that were up for grabs, the U/15 girls 800m final was a great race with Molly Aspell in the Newbridge singlet leading the field for the first 500m and with the large crowd cheering on their Club athletes from the twelve Counties a flash of green worn by Grace O’ Toole broke through the leading bunch surging clear with her trade mark gutsy run in the final straight  to capture another Leinster title for the Club.

The Girls U/ 15 team of Tara Murphy, Leah O’ Shea, Molly Aspell, Grace O’ Toole qualified for the final of the 4x200m relay but no medal joy. Our next meet will be the Leinster Indoor Juvenile Indivdual Championships on the  7th + 8th of March closing date for entries Friday 25th February,  also can the children who got notes with reference to the St Patricks parade drop them back to Club
