The highlight of a sun drenched Leinster Schools Track and Field at Morton Stadium today was a fantastic double by new Clonliffe Harrier Keith Marks. Keith`s senior boys long jump winning jump of 7.36m was a new Leinster Schools record. Earlier in the day Keith had taken the Leinster title in the high jump (1.90m).
In the senior boys javelin Justine finished 3rd. On the track there were 3rd place finishes by Sean O`Leary in the inter 3000 (9.14) and Cathal Doyle in the 5000 (15.35). Adam O`Brien was 5th in the 5000. “The Mauritian Express” Greg Hosseny was 2nd in the senior 3000 race walk and then a little over an hour later he pbed in the 800 (2.03) placing 7th, Joseph Hession was ran a pb in this race of 2.00.
First year inter boys Ben Guiden , 7th in the 1500 (4.30), Cian Bolger 6th in the 800 (2.10) and Jack Horan 7th 800 (2.11) found the going tough, but will benefit from the experience next year.
Congratulations to all the Clonliffe athletes who battled throughout the Leinster campaign and good luck to those who will compete in the All Ireland Schools on June 4th.
