District C Cross-country Championships

Congratulations to the Mini Girls and Mini Boys (Year 8) cross-country teams who competed in the recent District C Championships in Stranorlar in Donegal.

 

Both teams put on a great performance and each finished third place overall to receive bronze medals and qualify for the Ulster event in Mallusk.

 

These results were aided by some very strong individual running, including a second place finish by Luke Caskey for the Mini Boys; and two top ten finishes by the Mini Girls – Caitlin Gribben (4th) and Ruby Linton (8th).

Commiserations to the Minor Girls (Year 9), who just missed out on qualifying, in spite of an excellent performance in a very competitive field.  Nevertheless, they secured two individual Ulster qualifications, including Poppy Hastings (7th) and Erin McCoy (15th).

 

The Minor Boys (Year 9) also had a great race, with another superb display by Krzystzof Sokol to finish second and Tom Wilkinson (13th), both of whom are individual Ulster qualifiers.

 

Well done to all and thanks for a great day!!

 

Mr. Staples
