Spring Series finishes with more Clonliffe wins

The Juvenile inter club Spring Series concluded with round 3 in Newbridge House this morning. It was a bitterly cold morning with a wind that would have left many a cat skint so well done to all of the athletes and indeed their families who turned out. Today`s round was hosted by Lusk AC who did a fine job running the programme off in a most efficent manner it was also good to see that the series has expanded bringing in athletes today from newly formed Ballyboughal AC and also Lambay Sports.

Today brought some great efforts from Clonliffe athletes who have performed very well indeed throughout this series with Clonliffe athletes winning 7 of the 12 races. These included fine wins from Sally Sumola in the U/8 300m, Eva Keogh in the U/9 500m, Amy Hodson and Gavin O`Brien in the U/11 600m, Fintan McManus, chased all the way by the fast finishing David Tuite in the U/13 600 and in the U/17 mile a great win from Cathal Doyle from Adam O`Brien.

Race of the day may well have been the Carrig/Hossenny U/15 rematch over 800. Sean Carrig leading them out at a good lap over lap 1, however at the bell Greg powered into the lead and just managed to hold off Sean to even the score. 30 seconds later and Sean carrig was on the start line for the U/17 mile, brave but maybe not so wise….

The U/15 and 17 girls all ran well Alannah Cooley was 3rd in the U/15 800 after a good run with Sophie Higgins, Kate Hession and Amy McGrath not far behing. Laura Tuite battled well in the U/17 mile to place 3rd with a tired Sally Aherne in 4th.

So the end of a great little series for 2012. Thanks to Skerries AC and Lusk AC for their great contributions and we look forward to another Spring Series next year.
