On Wednesday the 17th of January our Athletics Squad competed in the Laois Schools Cross Country Championship held in Knockbeg. ️ The day was a great success with many individual and team medals.
First up was the Minor Boys. It was the first cross country race for many of the boys. The lads stuck well together in the race. Aaron Egan brought back silver with Cian Daly close behind in bronze. A 5th place finish from Tom Bergin and a 7th from Joshua Osumah. The boys started the day off well with a 1st place gold team medal.
Next up the Junior Boys. Debut performances from Luke Brady, Huzayl Sheikh and capped off well with an 8th place finish from Morgan Wojcik
And to finish off the CBS representatives were our Intermediate Boys who had a big field of 12 athletes on the start line. What started off as an honest pace, the pack broke away early with David Wajrak in a battle with Will Duffy of Knockbeg. The race was down to the wire with a dive across the line and David victorious! Close behind was Daniel Downey in 5th place, Dinny Whelan (10th) and Rueben Plunkett (15th); their contribution claimed a 2nd team position. Well done boys. Next up is the South Leinsters in Carlow in 2 weeks. Training will resume on Wednesday. ️
