Munster Schools Athletics

Tuesday the 5th March saw Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré take part in the Munster School’s Indoor Athletics Meeting in Nenagh.  A committed team of athletes in ranging from Minor to Senior competed alongside teams from all over Munster in the cauldron that is the Nenagh Olympic indoor track. A number of athletes recorded close to personal best times or distances while junior competitor Alannah Dunford recorded an outstanding personal best time in her 60m sprint.

Extraordinary commitment and endeavour by each competitor and support from teammates, teachers and family members were unfortunately not enough to garner silverware on the day.  Many of our athletes came very close. Junior athlete Rugi Havatitye comfortably won his 600m race and junior girls 4 x 200m relay team of Khya Lynch, Alannah Dunford, Lucy Lee and Mollie Dooley won their heat by 30 metres or more but were very unfortunate to loose out on medals on the clock by the narrowest of margins.
The drive and determination of all team members on the day bodes well for the beginning of the outdoor season.  The team in its entirety were Leigh Loughnane, Rugi Havatitye, Killian Bergin, Michael Fitzgerald, Christopher Moloney, Khya Lynch, Alannah Dunford, Lucy Lee, Mollie Dooley, Shauna Egan, Leah Moloney, Kyle Dooley, John Donovan, Hayden Keeshan, Adam Dooley and both Lee Dorans.
