The club had five athletes in action at the South Munster Schools Cross Country Championships at the Cit last Friday 30th January.

Killian Nolan (Christians) and Simon Upton( Midleton CBS) ran in the Junior Boys race. Both were in the leading group throughout. Killian had a very strong run to finish in 6th place as did Simon finishing in 8th place. Killian’s school’s team won the team event and Simon’s team also qualified. Fearghal Curtin and Eoin O’ Brien lined up with their Midleton CBS team in the Intermediate race. Fearghal led from the start and feeling strong halfway through the first lap increased the lead to have a good win. Eoin had a brilliant race finishing in 13th place and was the second scorer on the team which came second. Eoin will also be in this age group next year. Well done also to Emily O’ Keefe who finished just outside the top 15 qualification places in the Intermediate race. Best of luck to Killian, Simon, Feaeghal and Eoin who have qualified for the Munster Schools Cross Country Championships which will be held at the Cit next Thursday 12th February.
