Sarah takes 5th Schools XC title in Waterford

Congratulations to Sarah Healy (Holy Child Killiney) who notched up her fifth consecutive Schools XC title last weekend and in doing so created another piece of history as the first female athlete to hold all four age category titles at Minor (CIT 2014), Junior (Clongowes 2015), Inter (Sligo 2016 & Mallusk 2017) and Senior (WIT 2018). The race itself was a “mudfest” but once again Sarah was in imperious form making light of the conditions with yet another dominant display. Well done to Sarah.

Lara Gilespie was also running in the Senior race and was part of the Wesley College team that finished third in the team competition. Oisin Kelly (Newpark) missed the Senior boys race as he was away on holidays.
