Murphy creates history for Scoil San Carlo

Congratulations to Le Cheile athlete Liam Murphy who finished 2nd in the Kildare Schools cross country championship on the 14th of April. Liam ran a brave race leading for the entire 1.5km race but unfortunately was passed in the final 20 metres by the more experienced and highly capable Luke Morris of Newbridge AC. Liam representing Scoil San Carlo has the honour of winning the first ever County Cross Country medal for his school.

This race followed a fine performance by Liam in the Great Ireland Run on the 10th of April where he finished 15th out of over 1000 athletes in the under 16 Juvenile event. Liam completed the 2.8km Great Ireland Race in a time of 11 minutes and 2 seconds.
