The Three Counties Cross Country Schools League, Monday 18th November, finished well for Knockbegs athletes. We had teams in each category and all runners gave it their all on a very cold day at St. Laurence O’Tooles Athletics grounds.
Evan English, Harry Gordon, Callum Hayden, Sean Murphy and Cillian Whearty all put in brave performances and finished well over 4x 500m. The junior teams also braved the cold and over 4x500m all 9 fought hard for places. The A team consisting of Luke Buggy, Mackenzie McIvor, Ben O’Gorman and Sean O’Sullivan finished strongly and brought home an overall bronze medal in division one of the league. The intermediate team, Tadhg Ronan, Eoin Cawley, Lee Murray and Harry Lee also finished third overall in the league bringing home well earned bronze medals for all.
Finally our senior team, T.J. Burke, Finn Cummins, Alex Mackey and Patrick Kelly ran a strong 4x800m but unfortunately did not medal. Well done to all our athletes who competed, some for the first time, in the Three Counties League.
