Borrisoleigh Track-Attack Notes
Star Performance by Kate Minogue
Phase one of the Track-Attack Marathon Series is now complete after 51 athletes braved the driving rain and gale force winds of round 4 of proceedings and now have 14 of the 42 kilometres firmly tucked under their belts. On a night that wasn’t conducive to fast times, 14 of the 51 participants somehow managed to record times that were better than those of their previous week. In sport, kids need role models but on the night in question it was the young track-attackers who were the ones who we all looked up to following a string of outstanding performances that would prove impossible not to be impressed by. Kate Minogue was the star of the show in both the Pumas grouping and the Series overall. Her determination to succeed became more evident with every passing lap which in turn resulted in the young Templederry talent to record the best improvement overall on the night and she claimed the leading position in the Puma group with a total of 11pts. Good friends Eimear O’Donnell and Aimee Kenneally are hot on Kate’s heels following another impressive outing from both young track-attackers. Eimear sits in second spot overall with 12pts while Aimee is perched on the third podium spot with 15pts. The display of raw ability, determination and true grit by Ben O’Donnell also deserve a special mention and with a total of 24 points, he is sitting in the long grass ready to lay a challenge up the leader board of the Puma group.
Conor Gleeson is the runaway leader of the Tigers group after producing yet another outstanding performance. His performance defied logic as he made little of the tremendously difficult weather conditions. Keep an eye out for the name of this young talent as you could well be hearing a lot about him heading into the future.
Kathleen O’Meara was the stand out performer in the Falcons group with an impressive outing over the 5km distance. The Falcons league ladder is still being headed up by the fastly improving Martin Fahy with a total of 14pts. Wexford native Mick O’Connor has closed the gap to a single point however while the aforementioned Kathleen along with Mary Ryan now jointly hold the third position with 16pts.
Suzanne Whyte led the troops in the Bears group in week 4 resulting in her occupying the second spot overall on 15pts. Still leading the way is Rena Ryan on an impressive 8pts while Phil Mason is sitting on 26pts in third spot, a single point ahead of Anne McCormack.
Delia Ryan continues to impress week on week and was again the leading contender in week 4. Her performance have moved her into the leading placing, a place she jointly holds down with Mary Stapleton. Tom Shanahan was back to his best after his impressive outing at the recent Craughwell 10 miler and was the top performer in the Sharks group over the 5km distance. We’ve a new leader in the group overall after a table topping move from John F Kennedy now sees him leading the way on 12pts. Noel Kennedy is his closest challenger on 16pts while next in line is Paddy Ryan who is now in third spot overall on 18pts.
Tom Stapleton is now the one to catch in the Dolphins group after a performance that saw him record the best improvement of the night as well as move to the outright leading position on 15pts.
Marie Carr, Siobhan Carr, Aine O’Leary
Siobhan Carr is stringing together some very impressive performances and now sits in second spot on 16pts while a further point behind is Alan Kelly. We have joint leaders in the Lions group with both Betty Slattery and Marie Carr now heading up the group on 12pts each. Aisling Gleeson is next in command on 13pts.
Grainne Moore leads the Cheetahs group heading into phase 2 with a total of 13pts. Deirdre Collins looks set for a takeover for the group leadership with 14pts while Caroline Murray is also poised for a leader move with 16pts accumulated.
Senior Hurling: Well done to our senior lads who drew against Drom-Inch in the first round of the county championship last Sunday in Dolla. This was a great result considering and we showed huge heart and determination to get a result from a game we were always behind in. Our next game will take place on the weekend of 26th of April against Kilruane.
Junior Hurling: Our Junior Bs recorded our first win of the season by defeating Ballina in the opening round of the league. The final score line was 4-08 to 1-14. There is no fixture made for round two yet.
Our Junior As kick off their league campaign against Roscrea on Saturday evening in Borris at 6:30. Best of luck to all involved. Best wishes to Danny Ryan also, who picked up a nasty hand injury on Monday evening against Ballina.
Just a reminder that the camp will commence bank holiday Monday the 3rd of August from Monday to Friday. I will be around to the schools soon and from then on I will be taking bookings. I have been advertising a different camp in Thurles for the 13th of July so if anyone was wondering if that was a replacement for my Borrisoleigh one then it isn’t. Looking forward to more activities and fun this year.
