Youghal AC Ladies win Novice Club title

The County Novice Cross Country Championships were held in conjunction with the Even Ages Juvenile Championships in Carrignavar on 4th October.

First up was the Ladies Novice race. Aoife Cooke took command of the race in the early stages and won comfortably. Ruth Mellerick also had a fantastic run and it was all down to a sprint finish for the individual placings with Ruth just pipped for 3rd place to finish 4th. Evelyn Cashman also ran well to finish in 6th and new to Cross Country Julie Kenneally to run well concluding the scoring in 14th place. Lisa Walsh and Celia also ran well. The team won the team title with a superb score of 25 points ahead of Sr. Finbarrs 69 points and Cork Varsity 77 points. This was a great achievement for the club!

In the Men’s Novice race Nigel Sheehan ran well in a huge and competitive field to finish in 23rd; next in were Noel Curtin 39th, Mossie Cahill 56th and Sean Ahern 57th. The team finished in 9th place and also included Ed O’ Regan 83rd, Brian Landers 92nd, Vincent Lucey 98th, Finbarr Kingston 100th, Dermot Ledingham 101st and Tomas Ward 108th.

Well done all – another good turnout for the club.
