On the 21st of March we had a team of 22 going to the St. Enda’s Park Cross Country. The team had been training extremely hard over the over the past month. The boys had the target of running a 2 KM race, so we knew we had to try and get up to the level of running that comfortably.
On the day the boys were competing with 378 boys from schools all over Dublin. This didn’t faze the boys and they ran a brilliant and controlled race.
As a result we had some outstanding finishes. Our top four boys contributed to the Team Event. These including Tom Quinlan 5th, Ben Sheehan 8th, Cian Dunphy 12th and Gavin Fuscoe 21st. With this strong finish, the team won 1st place in the overall team event.
This is the first time the school has ever taken home the team trophy. All the boys pushed each other on in both the race and training and we are extremely proud of everyone of them.
Team: Michael Teljeur, Ben Sheehan, Adam Egan, Alex Keegan, James Kavannagh, Luke Lennon, Luke Doyle, Conor Fitzgerald, Louis Smith, Adam Wall, Eoin Denehy, Gavin Fuscoe, Tariq Almasary, Leon Creighton, Dillon O’Connor, Cillian Noonan, Michael Phelan, Ronan Dawson, Cian Dunphy, Sam McConnell, Harry Spratt, Tom Quinlan.
