Munster B Track and Field Championships
Some of our athletes had the opportunity to compete at Munster level this weekend with Tipperary as the location and Templemore Athletic Club the venue.
First up was Rosin Heffernan in the U9 60m sprint, Roisin ran with great spirit and finished in a time of 12.04. Later as County Champion in the Javelin she threw 8.00m bagging her bronze and her first Munster medal. Well done Roisin.
Sophie Coughlan competed in the 60m sprint and advanced from 4 heats to the semi finals in a time of 10.10s but wasn’t enough to qualify for the final. Daire O’Donnell also ran in the U11 60m sprint and advanced to the finals where he gave everything he had to come out on top and win gold in a super time of 9.33s.
Both Sophie and Daire who are County Champions in the 600m lined up amongst some great talent in the U11 event Daire claimed bronze in a time of 2.01 and Sophie won gold in a superb time of 1.59 and a PB for her.
