Borrisoleigh Track-Attack Club Notes

Jacqueline & Tracy Lead the Way
The individual women’s grade of the Track-Attack Snakes & Ladders Series is proving to be hugely competitive and with just 2 rounds of action remaining, we are sure to be in for a grandstand finish. Having reached square 36, both Jacqueline Minogue and Tracy Devaney have been showing an impressive level of improvement and consistency in recent weeks hence they are jointly leading the pack.
They need to keep an eye over the shoulder however as both Siobhan and Marie Carr have taken advantage of climbing a ladder and are only a single point in arrears of the leading duo. Mary Cummins is next in line having taken out lodgings on square 32. And just to keep the leading quintet on their toes, a further 7 athletes namely Edwina Ryan, Marie O’Connell, Celine Kinane, Aoife O’Meara, Yvonne Hodgins, Matilda Hayes and Kathleen Ryan are all ready to pounce in their quest for victory sitting nicely on square 28.
There was plenty of ladder climbing in the mens grade in round 3 with 4 athletes hitting the jackpot by landing on square 16 which enabled them to move up to the loftier position of 35. The ever improving Kevin Murphy and Patrick Tynan are joined by Mike Gleeson and Tom McGrath at the head of proceedings. Michael O’Brien, Alan Kelly, Kevin Delargy, Seamus Devaney and Denis O’Connell are keeping a close eye on their movements however with all 5 currently resting on square 28.  
Therese Groome is the star of the series to date and having climbed the greatest number of squares (44) to date, she holds a comfortable lead in the underage girls grade. Ella Ryan and Gabrielle Hodgins are next in line on square 28 while both Kate Minogue and Lucy Ryan have made their way to square 20.
One of our youngest Track-Attackers have negotiated his way to the leading position in the boys grade. Having got a leg-up to square 35 thanks to landing on 16, Sean Og Hayes is the new leader. Having gained the maximum of square thanks to their PB times in round 3, Cian Murphy, Patrick Groome, John Ryan, James Ryan and Tom Delaney are next in line with all 5 resting on square 28.
Mary Ryan and Evelyn Groome were the stars for Team Hazel in the team event with both adding 5 points each to their teams total and that coupled with team captain Tom McGrath’s 2 points and a single point each from Miriam Murphy and Lochlainn Hodgins have seen them hitting the Series jackpot as having landed on square 22, they are now elevated to number 60 thanks to the climbing of the ladder positioned on that square.
That same ladder was climbed by Team Fir helped mainly by the excellent performance of team captain Denis O’Connell. Denis notched up 5 squares, both Patrick Groome and Delia Ryan gained 3 each while Marie McGrath gained one.
Next in line are previous leaders, Team Willow. Sharpshooter Therese Groome gained 5 points with Rena Ryan adding 4 while Noel Kennedy and Helen Keane adding 1 each to being them to square 30. Here they are joined by Team Maple. Team captain Mairead O’Leary, Harry Groome and Matilda all hit the maximum of 5 squares, Kevin Murphy chipped in with 2 and a further one for Helen Kiely.
