XC League results summary 2013

Comments Off on XC League results summary 2013 Uncategorized

Well done to Isabel O’Brien who finished in fifth position overall in the Girls U10 XC leagues. This is a fitting reward for her consistency over the four races.

Well done also to all our athletes who enjoyed the four race format and who turned in some fine performances and by all account thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

We had a particularly strong representation in Leagues 3 & 4 with some excellent individual results which is a reward for the hard training and commitment from both the athletes and coaches over the last few months.

Finally, spare a thought for Evan Walshe who was on track for a top three finish in the Leagues until he was forced out of the last league race with an ankle injury. Well done Evan and great to see you fully recovered and ready for the Dublin’s this weekend.

It was a very enjoyable and surprisingly warm day at the Phoenix Park as our athletes stepped up their preparations for the Dublin Championships in two weeks time. As always the circuit provides a tough test and as we edge closer to the Championship distances the athletes turned in some fine performances.

A special mention to Dara Purcell, who was making his club debut in the Boys U12 and was a very impressive winner. Patrick Tucker had a fine 3rd place finish and Cianan Martin and Patrick Crotty ran well to finish in the main pack. A speedy recovery to Evan Walshe who was injured yesterday and could not race today.
