Bronze for Pappy in Santry!
Well done to our small group of athletes in action at the weekend at the National Junior and U.23 Track & Field Championships, in Santry. We had several of our athletes missing because of Leaving Cert. Patrick Tucker returned from a year away from athletics, to win bronze in the Junior 400m, putting in a great effort in the finish straight. Molly Hourihan finished 4th in the U.23 200m and 5th 400m. Cian Dunne, recovering from injury, ran a very good leg with the national 4 x 400m team, seeking qualifying time, on Saturday. He then won his heat in the 400m on Sunday, and despite a very good start in the 400m final the effort got the better of him and he ran out of steam in the finish straight dropping back to 6th position. Results: U.23 Molly Hourihan 200m 4th 25.23; 400m 5th 59.10 (57.69 H) U.20 (Junior) Shane Gevaro 9th 100m 11.15 (PB) 400m Patrick Tucker 3rd 51.20 (50.76 H) Cian Dunne 6th 52.41 (51.43 H) 50.04 (4x400m) 3k Walk Ciara Wilson Bowen 5th 17.11.47 (u.17) Molly Mullally 26.97 (PB) Heat (into strong wind U.17) Well done to all!
