Leinster Schools Track and Field Championship Report

Our young Shamrock athletes are spread across many secondary schools in the area with many competing, albeit in different colours in Morton Stadium at the Leinster schools track and field.

It is a feat in itself to even qualify for this event as getting out of the North Leinster’s is a hard task. A task that many of our young athletes rise to.

We saw some amazing results across day one. In the middle distance events they’re were silver and three bronze medals along with some very notable finishes.

Minor Boys

500m- Conall Kenny (Mount Temple) silver

800m – Tom Monaghan (Sutton Park) bronze, Conrad Latham (St Pauls) fourth.

1100m – George Sevastopulo (Mount Temple) bronze

Minor Girls

500m- Feena Corcoran (Holy Faith) – 5th

High Jump -Rachel O’Dea (Holy Faith) 4th

Senior Girls

1500m S/C – Caroline Kavanagh (Manor House) fourth

3000m walk -Viktoria Leder (Manor House) fourth, a great result for a newcomer to a very technical event

A courageous run by Shane Spring ( Ard Scoil Ris) saw him beaten by four-hundreths of a second to claim the silver medal in the senopr 5000m in a time of 15:20.54

Viktoria Leder (Manor House) took fifth place in the senior girls hammer with a throw of 24.87m a fantastic new PB.
