A team of eight Athletes travelled from the Club to the Annual Star of the Sea Cross Country which was held at Greenanstown, Stamullen yesterday. In near perfect weather conditions for cross country running our younger athletes got the day off to a great start with Aimee Doherty coming second in the Girls U9 500m race, this was then followed by Fionn Drummond who came first in the boys u9 500m. Aoife Rutherford ran a great race to finish 3rd in the Girls u10 500m and Tom Kilgannon had a tough battle in the boys U10 500m but came out on top taking gold. Nathan O’ Connor running his first cross country put in a good performance in the boys U10 event also.
Karen Hayes also running for the first time in a cross country had a strong run in the Girls U12 1500m finishing 12th. Fergal and Peter Kilgannon had a good run in the Boys U12 1500m and Boys U15 2500mm respectively and this will stand to them for their up and coming Meath Cross Country Events. Thanks to all who travelled yesterday, and thanks to Brendan Meade and Star of the Sea Ac who put on a great event again this year.
