In what seemed like mid winter temperatures, Philip Marron re-introduced himself to the steeplechase after a break of almost 2 years and he made it look easy as he powered to a commanding victory in the senior boys event in a time of 6 min 25 sec. Fionn Drummond continues to develop nicely into a high jumper of some note and his best jump of 1.40 earned him the silver in the minor boys HJ. In the minor boys 500m, Tom Kilgannon was closing fast at the finish on the eventual winner but also had to settle for second with a time of 1 min 20.6.
Matthew Buckley ran up an age in the intermediate boys 100m but still managed to secure the bronze while the Ratoath Community College boys minor relay squad of Stephen Kiernan, Luca Longhi,
Fionn Drummond and Tom Kilgannon were just outside the medals in 4th with a battling performance all the way to the line in a time of 56.4 sec.
Matthew Hayes finished second in the junior boys 1500m in 4 min 34 with Marcus Clarke 5th in 4 min 38. Both lads look capable of breaking 4 min 30 sec. in better weather conditions. Matilda Ruhan was an excellent 5th in the junior girls 75m hurdles and Rafa McCaffrey was 6th in the intermediate boys 400m
Best of luck to those that have qualified for the Leinster schools championships in mid May
