Results - Day 2 Leinsters

Day 2 was not much better from a weather perspective - although the rain eased off the wind got worse! The following are the results of our athlethes:

Ciara Hewson U/14 – 4th 800m
Connor Murphy U/15 – 4th 800m
Erica Dixon U/17 – Ist Javelin (Leinster Champion) - (New PB of 28m.86)
Aine O’Connor U/18 – 2nd 300m Hurdles & 2nd 1500m
Shelly Brady U/18 – 3rd Javelin

The performance of these athletes has led to qualification for the All-Irelands.

Well done to Basit Eniafe U/15 he just missed out on qualification taking 5th place in the shot putt, Connor Kelly put in a good performance despite having to throw shot and javelin in high such winds and rain. Alex Howell and Louis Hartnett both U13 put is solid performances in their 600m, this was their first Track & Field Leinster Championships – well done boys. Julie missed out on qualification in her 100m, coming 5th in her final.

Many thanks to the athletes who have trained hard during the year and thanks to the parents who endured two long wet & cold days in Tullamore.
