The Girls U9 were the first in action at the Dublin Uneven Ages Cross Country in Santry last Sunday. Orlaith led the team home with a super silver medal run followed closely by Niamh in 4th. Their teammates Lucy, Mya and Zara all ran great to mean the girls came home with the club’s first ever team cross-country medal with bronze.
Boys U9 were next up and Ruben had a superb race improving on all his league races to come a brilliant 16th. He is followed home by Charlie, in his first cross-country race, and Daniel.
The Girls U11 had two qualifiers for the All-Irelands with Sarah (8th) and Ella (9th) and with great back up Ava and Sophie they team finished 8th in a very competitive age group.
Ozie and Arthur had very brave runs in the Boys U11 following up on their consistent runs in the League while Joe ran a strong effort in the Boys U13.
Final All-Ireland qualifier was Marianne in the Girls U13 who ran a very patient race to come through very strongly and finish 11th.
The uneven ages All-Ireland takes place in Gowran on 5th December. Best of luck to Sarah, Ella and Marianne in that.
