ALL IRELAND INDOOR TRACK AND FIELD 2013

The Juvenile Athletics Indoor Season for 2013 came to an end last weekend 6th April at Athlone Indoor Arena. The competitions took place over two weekends. The first weekend held the Track and Field events while the second weekend held the Relays.

On the first weekend Chloe Casey competed in the u12 600m her first year competing indoors.  Chloe came 8th in a very strong field in a time of 1.56.22.  Arlene Earls competed in the u14 Long Jump finishing in 11th position with a jump of 3.56m.  Anja Quinn came 9th in the u15  Long Jump (3.86m) and 12th in the u15 High Jump (1.35m). Caomhan Conaghan won a bronze medal in the u19 Triple Jump (12.55m), a bronze medal in the u19 High Jump (1.90m) and finished 4th in the Long Jump (5.63m).  Janic Schulte finished 4th in the u19 Triple Jump (11.18m), 7th in the u19 Long Jump (5.15m) and 6th in the u19 High Jump (1.70m).

On the second weekend  the Relay competitions took place with two teams from Loughrea taking part.  The u12 4x100m team of Aoibhin Farrell, Chloe Casey, Emma Stewart and Rebecca Sheil finished in 9th place in a time of 62.42 narrowly missing out on a place in the final.  The u14 4x200m team of Arlene Earls, Siobhan McGrath, Erica Leslie, Emma Reynolds and Lauren Stewart made it to the final and finished 6th in a time of 1.56.39 with the winning team in that race setting a new national record.

Next month sees the start of the Outdoor Track & Field season and hopefully will bring more medals for Loughrea AC.
