Well where do we start. We had a very busy day in Santry at the schools cross country sponsored by Brother. In the primary schools races Niamh Bergin, Goda Buivydyte, Jocelyn Hanks, Erin and Aoibhinn Byrne, Aimee Ryan, Ava Dowdall were very impressive on the winning teams for MHoC in the 5th and 6th class races. Bruce had a strong run helping his St John Bosco team to 2nd place.
In the first year races for secondary schools we had Shona, Niamh, Lily and Eva on the St Dominics team which finished 3rd. Jana had a very good run for Mt Temple in 17th place. In the boys race Oisin was just pipped on the line for 3rd place but led his team to 3rd overall, first team medal ever for St Declans at this competition.
St Dominics inter and senior teams both won their team events. On the inter team were Clare, a very fast finishing Cliodhna Ryan and Kacey, Kate, Hazel and Aisling. Senior team were Celine with a great run leading in Dora, Sara Byrne, Gillian, Sara Forde and Cliodhna Donaghy. Caolan Collins had a very good run for DGA in 4th place, Jana Mehieden, Christopher and Joseph all ran well for Mt Temple in the inter races.
In the senior boys race Sean, Conor, Joe, Rowan, Ian, Killian and Sam gave it their best shot for St Declans over the three laps and narrowly missed out on a team medal. Well done everyone. Apologies i
f we missed anyone.
Thanks to all the parents who gave lifts and supported on the day.
