WIT Take Munster Universities Team Title

Updated: April 9, 2012

CIT was the venue,on Good Friday, and UCC the hosts, for the second annual Munster Universities Track and Field Championships.

As has become the case with Munster University Championships pride of place on the day rests with the team competition. In a break from the traditional 7,5,4,3,2,1 scoring system all athletes performances are awarded a performance score based on the IAAF Scoring Tables. The best 12 scores (with one or two more criteria applied) by each college are subsequently added up to reveal the team victors.

Two top class individual performances from David Hynes (WIT) in the 100m and the 200m proved to be the difference between WIT and UL on the day with CIT and UCC battling it out for third spot.

Position Team Points
1 WIT 88.55
2 UL 83.62
3 CIT 74.32
4 UCC 74.16
