Cross country season is here

The demense in Killarney was the venue today Sunday October 3rd with good conditions underfoot.We didnt have too many athletes competing this year like last year so it doesnt look like we will be defending our cross country title :(  The decision was made not to push cross country this season due to the ridiculous increase in cross country distances so we will concentrate even more on the track.
   Even so our fist athlete up on the day was Darragh Courtney who finished 3rd in the boys U10 with only 2 weeks training.Darragh Lowth was next up and his fitness was never in doubt when he finished 3rd in the boys u12 race competing a year out of age and up against last years national U12 silver medalist and national community games u12 600m champion Adam O Donoghue from An Riocht.We had two boys in the U18 5km with David Hogan taking silver and Dylan Carey taking bronze even though but ran well below par.Last but not least Katie Rogers put in a storming display to take 2nd in the Novice women running well above expectation and finishing very strongly showing all her recent hard work and balance of leaving cert study have paid off.Well done to all.
