Four students from Glenstal Abbey School competed in the Munster Schools Athletics Final in Castleisland Co Kerry on Saturday 19th of May.
Mikolaj Rzeplinski started the proceedings by competing very well in the Intermediate Shot Put, throwing a personal best of over 10 metres.
Next up was Stefan Caulfield Dreier who threw very well in the Intermediate Javelin with a distance of 28 metres finishing in third place and qualifying for the National finals in June.
Ted Collins competed in a very competitive race in the Intermediate 800m coming fourth place in a time of 2:02:97. He is underage for this event next year which bodes well for him and the school.
Finally Brian Hirooka competed very well in the 400m also coming fourth and just outside the medals.
Overall the athletes competed excellently and represented their school very well. Unfortunately, Conor Hartigan and Max Stone were unable to compete due to injury.
A big thank you to Garret Hartigan the Athletics coach who worked tirelessly all year to prepare the athletes and to Finbar Aherne who also assisted in the preparations.
