Great Day at Cavan Spring League for Innyvale, 23 February
The first of two days of the Cavan Athletics' Spring League took place on a Sunday 23rd February at the PeaceLink track in Clones. The crisp but dry winter's morning saw a wide variety of Cavan's athletes in action, from the youngest age groups right up to masters category. Innyvale AC had a good turnout from our athletes with 15 children taking part in the various races, jumps and throwing events, many of them for the first time.
In the Under 9 events, the theme of the day was silver. Kaitlin Shaw and Flynn Acheson both had a fine run in the 60m sprint, with both finishing in second place. Both then went on to earn another silver medal in the long jump.
The U10s was our busiest age group with five athletes competing in the 300m and turbojavelin. Mella Brady picked up a medal in her very first competition, taking third place in the turbojavelin. Emer Briody won the bronze medal in the 300m and also finished in second place in the turbojavelin. And in the boys race, the Innyvale runners finished in second, fourth and fifth places with Oisín Farrelly, Dylan Farrelly and James Brady all running strongly in the 300m event. Oisín also collected a silver medal in the turbojavelin, with James and Dylan just behind in fifth and sixth
In the U11, Ciara O'Reilly and Bethan Stokes finished second and third in their heat of the 60m, with Haley Ashe in the top five of her heat. Ciara and Bethan went on to finish second and third in their final. Eanna Clarke was unlucky to miss out on a top three finish in the boys sprint, which saw a very tight contest all the way to the finish, but he still finished in the top five.
Liam Briody had a good run in the U12 boys 600m race, coming home with a bronze medal for third place. Gráinne Gilroy took part in the shot putt where she won the first of two gold medals, the other coming in the 600m event.
And in the Under 13s, Aoibhe McEnerney had a great debut for the club with second place in the javelin, only 5cn behind the winner. Aoibhe and Zak Farrell both finished in the top five of their 80m sprint, and Zak was again in the top five in the javelin.
