Colleges Track and Field 2011

Once again it was Pobalscoil Inbhear Sceine teacher Majella Murphy who took athletes from the school to the Kerry Colleges Track and Field in Castleisland on 4th May.

There were some excellent performances on the day, with many pupils finishing just outside the medals.

Laura Hallissey won the minor girls 800m and Rachel Hawker the senior girls race of the same length. Newcomer Aodhan Coakley won a bronze medal in the intermediate boys shot, a great achievement for his first attempt.

The following week saw the three of them competing in the South Munster colleges which saw Laura winning silver in the 800m and Rachel gold in the 3,000m. Rachel went on later in the week to add 1,500m gold to her list of medals. Aodhan took bronze once more.

The Munster championships were held on 21st May in wet and windy conditions. Laura Hallissey came 4th in the 800m, Rachel 2nd in the 3,000m and Aodhan was 7th overall in the shot.
