Cross Country in Ballinacree Oldcastle Sunday 2nd Oct

5 hardy souls ventured out to Ballinacree yesterday, Tomás Brady, Áine O'Connor, Alex Hunter, Phillip Marron, and Peter Kilgannon and they all performed very well. Tomás in the U12's with very little cross country training kept a steady pace for his 2000m and finished very well. Áine was 5th in the U14's and qualified for the Meath Team with a fine strong run. Phillip, Alex and Peter combined with a team of only 3 to win the bronze medal in the Team Under 14 competition with Phillip running excellently to finish in 5th, Alex a very strong 10th and Peter in 14th(?) with both Phillip and Alex qualifying for the Meath team. Peter a natural sprinter dug deep to bring in the points for the team.
The weather was perfect for running and Thanks to St. Bridget's AC for a very well run and challenging event.
