Leinster IndoorChampionship 12/13 February

The boys were in action again this weekend. Liam Murphy was competing for the first time on track He ran in the 600m U13 race on Saturday he was supported by his dad, who reports that he ran a great heat and qualified for the finals. It what was a very long day he finally got back on track and there was a lot of pushing and shoving, he finished out side of the medals, but it was a great achievement to have made the final. Well Done Liam.

On Sunday, Pat Hayes headed down to Nenagh, Conall Hayes, Sean Flanagan and Conor Murphy were all in action. Conall was running in the U14 800, he had a heat and qualified for the final. Conall held his own in the final and again just finished outside the medals in 5th place, this too was Conall's first indoor race. Sean Flanagan was competing in the Long Jump and the 800m, Sean made it to the final of the Long Jump, job well done considering he couldn't even get a jump in at the club as its been so wet. Sean too had to run heats and he made it to the final, he finished in 6th place. Last up was Conor Murphy, competing in U18 800m, the u19 race was ran at the same time. Conor finished in 1st place and has taken his first indoor title, he is delighted with the result. Conor is off to Scotland on 4th March to compete for Kildare in the U20 800m, so we wish him well.
thanks to Willie Murphy and Pat Hayes, Well done to all the boys.
