Glenmore Report – 28 Sept 2015

A gutsy group of Glenmore athletes travelled to the first Cross-Country outing of the season at Star of the Sea on Sunday last. This meet is a tough course with top class athletes from all over the surrounding counties . First up for the club were the U9 girls team led in by Jessica White, Emma McCarragher, Katie McDonald & Aine O’Reilly. Next up were U10 Girls Lucy White, Chloe McCarragher, Anna Dawson, Orlaidh Daly & Jenna Rice on her first cross-country for the club. U10 Boys Fionn O’Reilly & Cormac McCoy ran bravely with Cormac competing in his first Cross-Country event. Lisa Conlon & Ava Brady flew the flag for the club in the U11 girls race. Laoise McElroy ran a valiant race in the U12 Girls event followed by U13 Girls Katie Conlon & Trinity Larkin on her first cross-country run. Erin Grey raced bravely in the U14 Girls race whilst Katie Mallon earned an individual 5th place medal in the U15 race. Richard Campbell stepped up to the mark in the U15 Boys race with Tadhg Leahy earning 5th individual place in the U17 event. Gavin White then kept the flag flying for senior men in the 6km event. Congrats to all for running those tough hills in such warm weather. They are all looking forward to the upcoming Louth Championships.

A belated well done to all Glenmore primary school athletes who competed for their schools event at DKIT.
