Cross Country Army!

Mr. Keenan does not do things by halves: when we say that sport at St. Conleth’s is all about participation, he practises what we preach and issues an open invite to all students to join him on his Track and Field outings. This time, he led his horde of student athletes over the mountains and through the trees to the East Leinster Cross Country Championships at Avondale.

 

 

As you can see from the smiles in the photos of our First Year runners above, the boys and girls have a blast and enjoy the day out in the crisp Wicklow air.  And we do not just do participation, we also do ‘winning’!   There were some quality runners hidden amongst this merry band, with Luke Timlin and Sydney Weir McErlean  winning Gold and Bronze in their respective races and many of our runners placing in the top half of finishers.  It was a long cold, day out, but the weather was bright and clear and Mr. Keenan kept warm by lining up competitors for the upcoming Leinster Schools Athletic Union Indoor Meet.  Interested First and Second years should sign up now with Mr. Keenan.
