Day 2 National Indoors

We had 4 athletes in action on day 2 of the National Indoor on Sunday. Keelin Gogarty and Clare o Connor ran well in the heats of the 800 under 16 but didn’t make it through to the final. In the under 17 race Clare Murphy missed out on a final place but Gillian got through and ran a new personal best finishing 5th in the final. A great weekend for Gillian, two 5th places and two PBs. Sara Byrne did well to make the final of the under 18 race but two hard races in one day was a big ask and she found the final very tough going but she never gave up!. The standard was very high in all the 800m races and is a huge step up in class from the Dublins. Keelin and Clare were in their first track Nationals and will learn a lot from the weekend. On to outdoors everyone!!!!
