DCH Senior Distance Roundup

Congratulations to the Ladies squad who excelled individually and team wise at the National Intermediate XC championships in Cork on Sunday – a long time since DCH Ladies won National Senior XC team medals! It was a great day for both Lauren and Celine who pushed each other to a 1,2 finish and with Edel in 7th and Ali in 8th, team success was also assured. Keeping our scoring quartet on their toes was Silje in 13th, Sinead in 17th and Ellen in 27th – great support team running! WELL DONE LADIES.
