More success at day 2 of the National Indoor Track & Field

Day two was a quieter day for Craughwell AC athletes with a smaller number in action at the 2nd day of the National Indoor Track & Field in Nenagh.

Paul McGill was the leading athlete for the club with a splendid throw of 12.83m in the U15 boys shot putt to take the silver medal in a tight contest. This brings to 7 medals so far that the club has won in this year's National Indoors – a great achievement and another weekend of action still to come.

Coming close to the medals, PJ Kelly jumped an excellent PB of 4.73m in the U14 boys long jump to take 4th place, with Jack Raftery leaping 4.51m to finish 6th in the same event. Also jumping strongly, Debi Kenny leaped 4.22m in the U15 girls long jump and Ashley McDonnell jumped 4.58m in the U16 girls long jump.

In the high jump, Niall Rooney equalled his PB with a leap of 1.50m in the U16 boys high jump while Tomás Keehan went a height further clearing 1.55m but going out at 1.60m – clipping the bar with his lower leg on the descent each time. Unlucky for Tomás as he had a strong medal chance in this event having medalled in this age group on a number of occasions. Tomás also recorded a good long jump with 5.13m. Also in the high jump, Orla Ryan jumped a fantastic PB of 1.40m in the U15 girls high jump and almost cleared 1.45m.

In the U17 60m hurdles, Rachel Finnegan finished 7th in final in a time of 10.18. Shane O'Halloran ran a strong race to record a time of 5.01.77 in the U17 boys 1500m, wrapping up a fine weekend for the club.
