Juvenile Indoor Track & Field Championships

riognach-caitlinFour young Harriers made the long journey to Athlone at the weekend to compete in the All Ireland Indoor Championships.

Three juniors had qualified for the 60m and first up was Caitlin Maguire who took a 10th of a second off her personal best to finish in 7th place in a time of 8.13 seconds in the U16 girls race. The very next race saw Micheal McGreevy finish 5th in new personal best time of 7.49 seconds in the U16 boys race. Last to the blocks for the short sprints on day one was Rebecca Marquess, who although bettered her personal best time by a 10th of a second just narrowly missed out on reaching the final.

The end of day one saw the 1500m and Rioghnach Catney has a fantastic run to finish in 9th place in a time of 5.32 seconds, this was 9 seconds faster than her qualifying time from Magherafelt.

Caitlin Maguire was the sole representative for the club on day 2 competing in the 200m. Caitlin took a full second of her personal best to finish in 7th place.
