Juvenile Club update: Holly takes EL schools title in Avondale, NIA training (updated)

Congratulations to all our athletes who took part in the East Leinster Schools XC competition at Avondale last week.

Holly O’Brien (St Andrews) continued her recent good form with a fine win in the girls Minor race and also led her team to 1st place. Ruby Mullen was also part of the victorious team.

Daniel Norton and James Neary were part of the Willow Park 1st year team taking part in the boys Minor race. Jack Fairmaner (St Andrews) was also competing in the Boys Minor race and just missed out on Individual qualification for the Leinsters finishing in 16th place.

Hannah O’Brien (St Andrews) and Annalie McMahon (Mount Anville) had strong runs in the girls Junior race while Antoinne Roquette (Wesley College) was 6th in the boys Junior race and part of the team that took 1st place.

Lucy Schwer (Holy Child) also had a strong run finishing 10th in the Girls Senior race 

Top 15 individual and top 3 teams go on to the Leinster Schools XC championships in Santry in early February.

Our 2009-2012 age groups enjoyed the plush surroundings of NIA’s arena on Sunday where they got the opportunity to work with their coaches on the various disciplines in advance of the Dublin Indoor Championships. Well done to all involved.

Congrats to Killian Thornton who took a massive 2 mins off his previous best at the Park Run in Cabinteely over the weekend.
