East Munster Track & Field


This year’s championship was held in Templemore Athletic Club. The conditions for this meeting were near perfect and this added to what was a very successful day for the Loreto girls. We had 19 athletes taking part in a range of events. In the minor category,Gillian finished 2nd in the 800m and Jess finished 3rd in the shot. In the junior, Veerle finished 2nd in both the javelin and the long jump. Sophie also performed very well with a 3rd place finish in the long jump. The girls in the intermediate grade also had a successful day. Emma finished in 2nd in the 100m, Ava  won the 800m and Niamh  finished 3rd in the 1500m. Our relay team of Ava, Brid, Niamh and Emma also performed brilliantly to finish 2nd.  All of the girls represented the school excellently in all events, with many now going on to represent the school in the Munster Championships in CIT at the end of May.
