We had a host of Club athletes competing in the Annual Blackrock College XC competition in Blackrock yesterday. This event is normally the curtain raiser for the East Leinster XC championships but was brought forward this year.
Congratulations to Ellen Cheung (Mt Anville/ 1st Minor Girls), Julie Ringrose (Mt Anville/ 3rd Inter Girls) and Oisin Kelly (Newpark CS/ 2nd Junior Boys) on very impressive performances.
Ellen took out the Minor race out from the start and finished strongly whilst Julie and Oisin got in very useful workouts in advance of the National Club Champs in a few weeks. All three athletes were up against very strong Dublin/ National Club competitors on the day.
Other athletes competing included Evan Walshe (Benildus/ Minor Boys), Dara Purcell (Colaiste Eoin/ Minor boys), Anna Dignam (Mt Anville/ Inter girls), Claire Doyle (Mt Anville/ Junior girls), Isabelle McCarthy (Mt Anville/ Inter girls), Kristina O’Connor (Loreto Dalkey/ Junior girls), Mika Ryan (Oatlands/ Inter Boys) and Dexter Finnegan (Oatlands/ Inter Boys).
Our athletes also helped Mt Anville pick up Team medals in the Minor Girls/ 3rd Place, Junior Girls/ 2nd Place and Inter girls/ 1st place.
Well done to all involved.
