National Indoor League Champions 2019

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!!
