Perfect running conditions greeted us in Santry last Sunday for day 2 of the Dublin cross country championships. Aimee and Martha were first off in the girls under 11 and both girls ran very well. In the under 13 race Shona ran her best race ever leading in the team of Aoife, Niamh, Yana and the much improved Beth. Our under 15 girls team came 3rd led in by Caolan Collins in a very good 5th place. Clare, Keelin and Yana all ran really well and were delighted with their bronze medals.
Joe fought hard and got 7th place to quality for Nationals under 15, Gillian had a great run finishing 5th under 17 and hats off to Celine on 8th place and her first top 12 finish in a Dublin championship. Sean was a classy winner of the boys under 17 and to finish off the day Dora was 3rd in the under 19 girls race.
Thank to Hilary, Yvonne, Dave and Teresa who looked after the business end on Sunday and well done to all our young athletes who represented the club so well.
