Club Weekly Notes week end May 7th

The County Junior, Senior & Masters Track and Field Championships was held in glorious sunshine on Sunday 6th June in Castleisland. The turnout was well up from previous years which resulted in plenty of competitive events. We had a very strong turnout from our club with thirteen men and six women competing in various events. A total of 32 individual medals were won.
A special well done to the Senior Men's team, made up of twelve athletes who competed in most events on the program. It was a great team effort with top three positions in all entered events. Our club was second overall, Tralee Harriers AC were the overall winners.

Senior men finished in 2nd place with 23 points (Tralee Harriers 1st on 44points)
Senior Women finished in 2nd place with 12 points (Tralee Harriers 1st on 18points)
