Parkside schools cross country update

What a great day for our younger club members in the Bogies on Wednesday. No wind, no rain , beautiful sunshine, lots of energetic children, what’s not to like!!!

Amelia Carmody got our day off to a fine start with an impressive win in the 2011 year group. Eoin Marron had a great run coming 2nd in the boys 2011 race. Pearl o Brien was equally impressive winning the 2010 age group with Jessica Ryan a very good 2nd.

In the girls 2009
race Megan o Leary took the lead early on and led to the finish line followed by Martha Fisher in 2nd and Abigail Delaney a fine 3rd. Bruce o Brien fought hard for his 2nd place in the boys race.

The club ‘big guns’ were out in force in the girls race with a clean sweep of the top six places. Goda Buivydyte led the charge with Joclyn Hanks, Erin Byrne, Aoibhinn Byrne, Aimee Ryan and Bianca Matache all filing in behind her. Very impressive!!
In the final girls race of the day Niamh Bergin ran a very well judged race and ended her primary schools cross country days with a very impresse win in the 2007 age group. Meave o Leary ran her best race so far and finished 5th .

Well done to all. If any of you know the parents of any of the children who raced yesterday not in the club who might be interested in joining please encourage them to.

Thanks to all the parents and friends who helped out yesterday. You made the day!
