Pride of place goes to Matthew Buckley who once again dominated his u 14 60m final to claim the gold in a CBP of 7.63 sec. Matthew will be trying for the double next weekend when he goes in the 60m H. Emma Coroner was close to her best in the u 14 60m heats but just failed to make the final despite running a fast 8.52sec. Lili O Connor was ultra consistent in the L/J but her best of 4.32 m left her in fifth and just out of the medals. Lili's favoured event is the 60m H which takes place next weekend and we wish her the best in that.
Philip Marron ran an indoor PB of 4 min .13.03 in the u 18 boys 1500m and despite a really strong finish, he was just outside the medals when taking 4th. Deirdre Healy kept her haul of national medals ticking over when running yet another PB of 4 mins 45.91 in the u 19 1500m, finishing a close third behind Louise Shanahan and Clodagh O Reilly.
When the going gets tough, the tough get going and that summed up Aimee Doherty's attitude in the u 12 600m as she threw down the gauntlet to the rest of the field with a blistering 33 sec opening 200m. Aimee was only caught in the closing stages but she hung on for third in wonderful race when posting 1 min 47,71 sec. Tom Kilgannon is another of our young and highly talented middle distance group and his 9th place (1 min 45.71) in the boys u 13 600m will keep his big brother Peter and the rest of our older group on their toes as there is a new up and coming kid on the block.
Well done to everyone.
