Day 2 of the Connacht Indoors Championships took place today at Athlone AIT Arena. We had just one member competing.
Conor Naylor ran in two races – the Senior 60 and 200 metres. Both races had two heats with five sprinters in each, and finishing times deciding the medals. Conor finished first in heat 2 of the 60 metres in 7.37. In heat 1 Aaron Cadden (Sligo AC) won in 7.19. However Conor won silver with the second best time. It was a similar story in the 200 metres. Both ran in the faster heat 2 won by Aaron in 22.59, with Conor in silver 24.12. It was a very impressive performance by Conor – great to see the Naylor name continue to make athletics headlines – congratulations.
Closer to home in the cold but dry environs of Derrywash the annual local NS 6k run took place this morning. There was more success for Mayo AC. Anto Devaney was first home in 23:30 while Angela McVann was first woman finisher. Brendan Murphy was second behind Anto in 23.37.
