Re-Run of U13/15 Cross Country Championships 21/02/2010 & B CC Championships

The Re-run of the u13/15 All-Ireland Championships took place yesterday in Lough Key. Le Cheile had two atheltes competing on the boys U13 Kildare Team . Conall Hayes and Darragh Nolan. They were accompained by their parents and I've been told that it was a very well organised event. The boys were out of the medals in the "A" race but Conall picked up a gold Team medal when the Kildare won the U13 "B" race.

Also in action was Conor Murphy U17, Conor went out from the start and was in 2nd place with a lap to go, he was beaten in a sprint for the line and had to be content with 4th Place. This is out of age for Conor, unfortunately Conor was let down by his fellow Kildare Team as enough of them did not turn up to score. Congratulations on your individual medal.

Next competition will be the Indoors on 27/28th February 2010 in Nenagh. Athletes in action are, Conor Murphy, Julie Boyle and Basit Enafie.
