A big day for Clongriffin Athletics and Belmayne Educate Together Secondary School on Thursday when Marianne claimed the Leinster Schools Minor Girls Pentathlon title in the National Indoor Arena. Kate and Meabh, also part of our Girls u14 squad, competed brilliantly throughout the day with standout PB performances particularly in the High Jump.
Marianne started her day well with a PB in the Hurdles and then a big PB in the High Jump with 1.45m. A solid long jump and shot put had her in 2nd place going into the final event, the 800m. Another big PB, taking her 4 seconds off her previous best, catapulted Marianne into gold medal position when all scores were added up.
Big thanks for our own Coach Dan, maths teacher in the school, and also Aisling, school principal, who is a massive advocate of Athletics and all sports in general in her school.
