XC Championships 2014 - Day 1, Killarney

First day of Kerry Cross County Championships saw Juveniles in Even Age groups and Novice starting the season in Killarney. After a long spell of dry weather conditions,the  field in Demesne was in great condition and it was a good turn out of athletes.
St.Brendan's AC had a small group of athletes competing and for some this was their very first cross country experience.
We started with Lilly Nowak in Girls U10 (1000m) and she did an excellent job, placing in the middle of the over 30 strong pack, running one year out of her age. 
Next in line was our U12 girls (2000m), again with a high number of runners. Daisy Nowak & Sadbh Lowth were also competing in a higher age group category and both finishing in the middle of the field. Stand out performance of the day belonged to Eimear O'Sullivan in her first ever XC race in U12 as she ran a strong race and placed 8th.
In the Men's Novice race (6000m) we had Artur Nowak & Dariusz Odwazny battling hard but finishing outside medal position.

Well done to all athletes for great performance on the day and hoping for more of the same (or better) next week in Kenmare on Day 2 XC Championships with Juveniles Uneven Ages and Masters categories.
