The National Senior Indoors were held in Abbottstown this weekend. KCH had five athletes involved in the competition. Eoin Everard, having comfortably qualified in Saturday’s semi-final, was set for Sunday’s final. A hitch with the lap counter left him with a major difficulty going into the final lap. Finishing strongly in 3.55.79 he placed second. Greater attention to the lap counter might have seen him closer to the 3.48.58 he posted at the Athlone International on Wednesday. Best of our sprinters was Callan Byrne who finished 6th in the 60m semi-final in 7.05. Ciara Deely, despite being second in her heat, bowed out of the 400m on 56.83. Cliodhna Manning finished 5th in her heat of the 60m (7.77). Jack Manning exited at the heat stages of both his events the 60m and 400m – 4th in the 60m (7.26) and 3rd in 400m (56.83).
