Another dry day for Kildare Cross Country Championships -hosted by Crookstown Millview. Le Cheile athletes were in high spirits and it was a day that saw the Dad's out number the Mam's. The U10 girls took to the line and were off in a mad dash,a great race to the finish which saw Carragh come home first in 7th place followed closely by the rest of her team whoe were in 17,22,25 &26th place- debut races for Emma, Alice and Ailbhe -well done girls, you will see from the photo's that there were lots of smiles. First home for the u10 boys was Pearse Nolan, having lead the race for the first 300m Pearse was unlucky to finish in 19th place with the rest of his team in 25,26,34th. Big, big thanks to Taghd who saved the U10 team the morning of the race as an athlete had to pull out. Debut race also for all of these boys - well done. U12 Girls, tough race for the girls and Cliona was first home for the girls, Megan brought her team home and all girls did themselves proud. U12 Boys, the boys tried to get out quickly but it was a big field and some were hampered, first home was Conall - 8th, followed by Niall -9th, Patrick 17th and Naill 19th, it was enough to secure Silver in the team event. U14 Boys were off and in a very quick race Sean was the first home in 5th, Fiachra 7th, Darragh 11th and Conor secured Silver for his seam in 17th - well done to all as most of these boys were out of age. U16 saw Connor Murphy competing against athletes from Naas and Kilcock - Conor had a great run but was out of the medals on this occasion, Basit also had a good run and was glad to finish this 3k race. U18 saw Erica take to the start against teams from Celbridge and Kilcock, however is was Ciara O'Connor who won the race in great style, Erica finish in 4th place, these u18 girls will make up the Kildare junior team competing in the Nationals later this year.

Many thanks to the parents on the day who were a great help, I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks to Paul (Conor Kiely's dad) for all the photos, apologies for my poor ones that show the U18 girls (I forgot where the zoom was). Best of luck to the athletes that are going forward to the Leinster CC which are being held on 25th October in Adamstown, Co. Wexford for the U12-U18 - and U11-19 which will be held on 8th November in Charleville Castle Tullamore.
