Golden Cow League
We had four athletes competed in the 3rd round of the Golden Cow League at the Mary Peters Track in Belfast. Victories for Pauric Feely in the Senior Men's Triple Jump, Stewart McClean in the Senior Men's High Jump and also 3rd place in the 400m (51.41) and victory also to Laura Friel in the Senior Womens High Jump (1.50m) and the 200m. Brendan Alexander finished 2nd in the 400 (B) race and recorded a new p.b. although he was disappointed that his event, the pole vault, was not held due to equipment problems at the venue. This was the last Track and Field competition of the season and training for everyone for the winter season will resume on Tuesday, 6th September at 7.30pm.
