Medals To Be Presented At Santa Dash
Our first Dublin Cross Country League season concluded on Sunday in Tymon Park.
Dublin Athletics League Results
Dublin Athletics confirmed the final league results this morning and there is some very positive and exciting news.
Orlaith O’Grady was the overall winner of the Girls U9 league with an overall score of 90 pts, 3 points ahead of the athlete in 2nd place.
Ella O’Dwyer was 2nd overall in the Girls U11 league, just 2 points off 1st place. Sarah O’Farrell was equal 7th. Both Ella and Sarah close out their cross-country season as part of the Dublin team at the All-Irelands in Gowran on Sunday.
Marianne O’Farrell was equal 3rd in the Girls U13 league. Marianne also competes for Dublin in Sunday’s All-Ireland.
Aaron Rao was a superb equal 7th in the Boys U14 league. This was largely down to his very brave run last Sunday when he went with the leaders and was rewarded with a big points finish.
Top 6 finishers will receive an award from Dublin Athletics over the coming weeks but a Top 10 finish in the Dublin Leagues is a huge achievement for all these athletes.
All Congriffin athletes who competed in at least three of the Dublin League or Championship races will receive a special cross-country Gold medal. Any athlete who competed in 2 of the races will receive a special Silver medal. The medals will be presented at the Santa Dash in December.
Well done to all the athlete who showed great commitment to training and racing over the past couple of months.
