A superb day out today for LCC athletes at the West Leinster Cross Country Competition in the Phoenix Park.
The unpleasant weather conditions didn’t stop the team from running very strong races.
Congratulations to Milly Hughes, Liam Fitzgerald, and Dara Donoghue for qualifying for the Leinsters.
They were also flying the flag today for local club, Lucan Harriers.
Congratulations to Leo Myers who also qualified for the Leinsters, and displayed enormous endurance in his race.
6th year student, and St. Coca’s athlete, Áine Burke, continued her outstanding winning streak this year, taking home 3rd place medal in Senior girls.
We are all very excited to see all run in Santry in the coming month. Special congratulations to 2nd years, Anna O’Connor, Luke Trunk and Ellie Sisk, who all put in amazing performances today.
