National Indoor Championships

It was a successful weekend for our track and field athletes competing at the highest level of the domestic indoor calendar in the National Senior Indoors, Abbotstown. Our jumpers did the business again bringing home a silver and a gold from Ruby Millet who was 2nd in the LJ with a jump of 5.69 and Saragh Buggy who won the TJ with a leap 12.86. This was Saragh's second indoor title in succession and caps off a fine indoor season. New personal bests were also set with Nicole Kehoe Dowling throwing 10.96m in the shot, Jamie Pender ran 50.13 in the heats of the 400m for 8th overall on times and Eoghan Buggy ran 49.61 in the heats of the 400m followed by a 5th place finish in the final with 49.70. In the women's 400m Aoife Campion ran 62.04 for 4th in her heat. Daena Kealy cleared 1.60m in the HJ and in the 1500m Maisy O'Sullivan finished 5th in a competitive women's race with 4.32.35 while James Tyrell ran 4.25.25 in the men's.
