Borrisoleigh Track-Attack Notes

Gabrielle Shines Bright
Gabrielle Hodgins form shone brightly despite the atrocious weather conditions at the fourth round of the Track-Attack Safari Team Trek which is been kindly sponsored by Camsaw Distributers Ltd (main suppliers of OleoMac and Weibang lawnmowers). For the second week running, she recorded the maximum haul of 60 points for her team which in turn was the standout reason that saw the Antelope team which is captained by Ton Delaney move to second place overall on the league ladder.

Track-Attacker Eamon Groome at Milford 10km

Storm Henry and the Minister for the Environment, Alan Kelly were both in attendance to witness the 141 athletes who braved the driving wind and rain to complete their respective 3km, 4km and 6km distances.

As well as Gabrielle, the quartet of Philip Rabbitte, Edel Minogue, Oran Bergin and Olivia Murphy all recorded positive point’s totals which in turn meant that the team picked up an extra 50 bonus points and they now sit in second place poised to make their move to eat into the Buffaloes lead.
For the second week running, the Buffaloes were the top scorers as they cemented their place at the head of the table. Aaron Reid was their jewel in the crown securing 60 points after a superb run that saw him complete the 4km course in 16:29. The team captain Mick O’Connor is certainly leading by example and following another hugely impressive showing he knocked a further 39 seconds from his PB. Siobhan Carey, Mairead Lane, Marie Madden, Luke Cooney and Donal Ryan all recorded PB’s which guaranteed them the bonus points on the night.

Track-Attacker Tom Shanahan at Milford 10km

Tracy Devaney’s Tigers were the big movers of the night when jumping from 14th place overall to a podium placing of third following a string of excellent performances. For the second week running, Joanne Shanahan was their star performer with another 60 point addition. Tracy chipped in with 53 points while Margaret Meehan (21), Christine Rabbitte (10) and superb performance from young gun Darragh Fitzpatrick (30) contributed brilliantly to their positive league table movement.

The Cheetahs sit nicely in fourth place and were unlucky to lose put on the bonus points which would have brought them onto the podium. Colm Boyle and Seb Marchand were instrumental in their accumulation of points with both securing the maximum 60 on offer. Teresa Coffey and Tom McGrath were their other scorers on the night.
Making up the top 5 are last week’s second place team, the Hyenas. Captain Joe Holland, Johnny Maher and a superb showing from Eithne Kennedy were their highest scorers on the night.
