Successful day at the District Cross Country Championships

19th Jan 2022
On a cold but clear day in the Palace Demesne the St. Patrick’s athletes enjoyed something of a medal rush in the district cross country competition. Entries from 28 schools made this a seriously competitive event for our pupils. The Senior Boys and Girls teams both brought home team gold medals as well as a tremendous individual gold for Patrick Nugent. Senior Girls Team Niamh Carvill, Orlagh O Connor, Kate Crilly and Maeve Lennon Senior Boys Team Patrick Nugent, Dylan Mone, Fionnan O’Braonain and Darragh McMullen Not to be outdone the younger pupils certainly put in a huge effort and the Junior Boys team brought home a tremendous second place to secure the silver medal position. The minor girls team had Ella Toal and Cara McGeary in the top three to secure superb individual Silver and Bronze medals as well as set up a great finish for Sarah Beagan and the rest of the team to collect the team Gold. He may have been just out of the individual medals positions but a brilliant 4th place finish for Lochlainn Beagan was enough to ensure the Bronze medals for the Minor Boys team.
