North Connaught Track and Field

The trails took place on Tuesday 28th April in the IT Sligo. 16 students represented St. Mel’s College and put on a great show of determination and stamina although all were not successful in qualifying. One of the highlights was Mark Mc Nerney (1st yr) who came 10th out of a field of 24 in the 800m Junior. The first 6 qualified for the finals so Mark narrowly missed out. Clayton Finn had a great day. He ran in both the 100m and 200m. He won his 200m heat and came 2nd in the final qualifying for the Connaught Finals in 2 weeks time in Athlone. Clayton narrowly missed out in the 100m coming 2nd in his heat after slipping at the start of the race.
