There was delight all round in Athlone today as our senior women’s team managed to retain their National Indoor League title for the 3rd year in a row. This is also the first time a women’s team have managed a 3-in-a-row for the Indoor League so a great achievement by all!
The day was kicked off with Catherine winning the 200m comfortably in 24.84 and in a similar fashion, Emily won the high jump clearing 1.65m with ease.
Next up in the field events was Siobhan in the triple jump who secured a solid 6 points for the team. Jodie then coasted to an easy victory in the 1500m in a time of 4:36.11 followed by Claire in the guest 800m running a solid 2:18.62.
Catherine was back on the track again after a quick break and won the 400m in a steady 56.65. Caoimhe also guested in the 400m and improved on her performance from League 1 by getting 2nd in a time of 60.30
To round out a great days work, Chloe, Alison, Caoimhe and Catherine then dominated in the women’s 4x200m relay to secure the overall trophy.
A massive congrats to all our team and guest competitors today and of course all our team members who put in the ground work in League 1 two weeks ago.
Winning National Senior medals does not come easy, but it can certainly be made to feel easy when you have such a committed team of athletes, coaches and supporters behind you – well done & thanks to all!
Roll on Indoor League 2020!!
