The annual Star of the Sea cross country took place today at Greenanstown, Stamullen. The weather was great and the course was in great shape. We had a great turnout from the club with over 25 athletes competing on the day. Our girl’s teams were particular strong winning bronze in the girl’s u9 event with great individual performances from Caoimhe Fitzsimons 4th and Ciara Coroner 5th. Our u10, 11 and 12 girls’ teams took gold with standout individual performances from Sophie Quinn who was 1st in the girls’ u10 race with Laura Kelly 5th and Niamh Murray 12th. Aimee Doherty had a strong run to win the girls u11 event, with Elbha Toole 5th, Molly Keane 11th and Aoife Casey 20th. Our u12 girls Ella Healy, Lili O’ Connor and Aoife Rutherford all ran well finishing 3rd, 8th and 10th respectively to take the girls title. Harry O’ Connor had a great run finishing 3rd in the u10 500m leading the boys’ home to bronze in the team event. James Kelly, Fionn Heffernan and Gavin Witter running out of their age were very strong in the u9 boys’ event finishing 7th,10th and 20th.
Well done to all athletes who made the trip today for our first cross country of the season and a reminder that the Meath even ages cross country championships will take place at the same venue this Sunday October 5th.
Thanks to Star of the Sea Ac for another terrific event.
