Rogers trio per­form well

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

THE Rogers fam­ily from Togher had three ath­letes on the Louth team who com­peted in the Na­tional League in Santry over the week­end - and they all per­formed with dis­tinc­tion.

All three com­pete for the St Peter’s club in Dromiskin and Emily won the Women’s high jump with a best of 1.72m and was fifth in the ham­mer with 19.02m.

Cather­ine was third in the Women’s 1500m walk and Bren­dan was sec­ond in the weight for dis­tance with a best of 4.03m but was dis­qual­i­fied from the Men’s 3,000m walk af­ter fin­ish­ing sec­ond.

Conor Durnin was first in the Men’s triple jump with 12.44m and Tom McGrane - who also dou­bles up as team man­ager - was third in the Men’s shot putt with 8.94m.

Ni­amh Fussey also made her wel­come re­turn to ath­let­ics when she took her place in the Women’s 4 X100 team, run­ning the third leg as the team fin­ished fourth.

Af­ter the two rounds it looks like both of the Louth teams will make the fi­nal, with St Peter’s club mem­bers cer­tainly play­ing their part.
