Indoor Athletics

The Schools Indoor Athletic Munster Championships were held in the Indoor Arena in Nenagh on 4th March. Coláiste Phobal Ros Cré were represented by Adam Dooley, a First Year student in the Minor Boys 60m sprint and the Long Jump. The event was very well supported with a huge number of athletes in all events.

Adam began with the long jump. After a couple of warm up jumps, he jumped 4m 73 in the first round, followed by 4m 86 in round 2 and finished with a PB of 5m 19. This was a fantastic jump with only 2 athletes jumping over 5m. Adam won the silver medal and was delighted with his performance.

Soon afterwards the heats for the 60m sprint took place. 12 heats with 10 sprinters in each one took place. Adam ran in heat 4 and finished in 1st place. He then ran in a Semi-Final and again he won this. In the Final however, he did not get the best of starts and crossed the finishing line in 4th place.

Overall it was a great day for Adam and we wish him all the best in his forthcoming events.
