4 senior athletes, namely Phil Healy, Shane Howard, Joe Gibson and Fiona Everard, competed in the
National Indoor Championships last weekend.
Phil Healy received Gold in the 400m race, attaining a time of 52.81 seconds in the Final. Phil has also been selected to be on the Irish team that will compete in the European indoor championships in Glasgow, this March.
Shane Howard also placed first for Gold in the senior mens long jump, with an enviable jump of 7.44.
Joe Gibson and Fiona Everard performed well also, finishing outside the medals.
To come away with two Gold medals is excellent, and we would like to congratulate all four senior athletes and their respective coaches.
The results of the Munster Schools Cross Country , held In W.IT. show that some of our members have progressed to the All Ireland schools finals next month.
Wishing them all the best in their endeavors.
On another celebratory note, we would like to wish Mr. Michael O’Reilly- Long time member and loyal supporter of Bandon Athletic Club a very happy 90th Birthday.
