We had five athletes running in the Leinster schools XC chapionships in Santry demense last week. Congratulations to Sarah Healy (Holy Child Killiney) on her fifth consecutive Leinster Schools XC title with another dominant display in the Senior Girls 2,500m. Lara Gilespie was part of the Wesley College team who picked up a bronze medal in the Senior Girls Team competition.
Oisin Kelly (Newpark CS) had a strong run in the Senior boys 6,000m finishing in 9th place (he misses out on the Inter age group by a few weeks). Lucy Schwer (Holy Child Killiney) and James O’Brien (Oatlands College) had equally impressive runs in the Junior Girls & Boys age groups.
Sarah, Lara & Oisin will all be competing in the All Ireland Schools XC championship in WIT on Saturday 10th March.
