Post date: Oct 29, 2013 11:22:38 AM
The County B Cross Country Championships were held on 20th October in Conna on a well laid out course. Unfortunately weather conditions were miserable.
Juliette Nicholson was our sole competitor in this race but she ran a superb race to finish in 10th place.
These lads did not fail to impress at this Championship. There were four runners; Charlie O’ Brien was 7th, Liam O’ Connor 10th, Charlie O’ Neill 11th and Eoghan Rooney 19th. Their score was sufficient to win the team title and Charlie O’ Brien narrowly missed out on an individual medal.
This team again came another unlucky 4th and included Joy Nicholson 10th, Lilianne Pelylie 15th, Robyn Buckley 28th, Lucy Nicholson and Ella Fleming 44th.
This team was 6th in a very big field. First in to score was Oisin Hill 22nd followed by Tom Fleming 30th, Ross Williams 32nd, Sean O’ Connor 42nd and Eanna McEnally in 47th.
Faith McEvitt had a strong run to finish in 4th and winning an individual medal. She was followed by Tirna Cahill 26th and Lilianne Pelylie 32nd. They were short one athlete for a team.
Darragh Buckley had a good run to finish in 22nd place and was running up an age.
Karynn Collins had a very solid performance to finish in 2nd place winning the silver medal. Aine O’ Regan also ran well to finish in 10th place as did Sarah Williams in 11th. Bettina Pelylie was the fourth scorer in 20th place and their score earned them the 2nd team medals. Well done girls!
We had one athlete Zsofia Balogh who had a great race and worked her way from 4th to 2nd to win the silver individual medal.
