In the guest races Joseph Mcloughlin had his first indoor race over the 200m, Sam ran a PB in his 200m, Sean ran a PB in his 800m, Joe and Ian competed well in the 800 and 400.
In the women’s events Clare Murphy ran a PB in her 400m with Ashley close to her best. Gillian ran her first 800 indoor this season.
The relays finished off the team competition and as the women were well ahead going into the relay, Catherine took over as relay coach and after a very gutsy exciting run by all the the young team of Ashley, Clare, Caoimhe and Allison came 3rd , and won the overall competition and were presented with the winners trophy for the 4th year in a row.
