Flahavan's Northern Ireland Primary Schools' Cross Country Championships- Heat 3

24th Jan 2018

Twenty two pupils from Saint Conor's P.S competed in the third and final round of the Flahavan's Northern Ireland Primary Schools' Cross Country event, held at Holy Cross College on Wednesday 24th January.

The 1200m course was tough; with cold weather and heavy ground, making conditions more difficult than usual. A huge effort was made by all the children to complete the course. Congratulations to Emma Mc Crossan, who ran another fantastic race in the girls' event. Emma finished in second place and has guaranteed her place in the 'Individual Girls' N.I finals in Mallusk. Special mention goes to Jenna Mullin and Ciara Mc Ginn who finished in the top ten positions for the second race in a row, giving the girls' team a fantastic  chance in qualifying for the N.I Finals team event.

Well done to Fionn Collins who finished first in the boys' race. Fionn finished with a strong sprint, to clinch victory in a highly competitive boys' race.

There was great running from all the boys in the Individual Race. Congratulations to Rory Dolan who ran brilliantly, achieving second place overall. Close behind were Conor Gormley, Cillian Mc Crory and Frankie Monk; all boys finishing in the top ten places.

Thank you to our caretaker Chris Mc Guigan, who helps coach and prepare the children for their races.

Keep up the great running everyone.
