Posted on February 10, 2019 at 1:55 PM

Well done to those who took part in the first day of the Cavan Spring Development League on Sunday 10th February at the PeaceLink track in Clones. Turnout was small on this very cold and wintry day, but an enjoyable morning of athletics was had by the hardy folks who came despite the weather and the Innyvale contingent fared well.

Ciara O'Reilly finished fourth in her very first event for the club, the under 10 girls 300m and went on to throw 7.49metres in the turbojavelin event, which was enough to earn Ciara a silver medals. In the U11 girls, Gráinne Gilroy got off to a flying start in the 60m sprint, taking the lead immediately and never giving it up to take the gold medal in her first competition for Innyvale. Gráinne went on to take second place in the long jump, with a best jump of 2.80m, edging a close contest for the silver and bronze medals. In the under 12 boys, Zak Farrell battled to a though fourth place finish in the 600m and went on to finish in sixth place in his first shot putt event, sending the 2kg shot out to 4.59m.

Well done to all and hope you had fun! Day 2 of the Spring League is in Shercock on Sunday 3rd March
