17th Secondary Schools Cross Country at Finn Valley A.C.

The 17th Secondary Schools Cross Country competition took place at Finn Valley A.C. today in inclement conditions but this didn’t dampen the enthuaisim from the competitors.

The annual Secondary Schools Cross Country event was held today in the grounds of the Finn Valley A.C. This is an opportunity for students to test their athletic prowess against their peers from across the county and beyond and for some it will be their first competition since graduating from Primary to Secondary level.  Unfortunately as was the case at last year’s competition, the weather wasn’t kind, however competitors, teachers, stewards and staff all braved the conditions to run what was an excellent event. In total there were 600 plus competitors and 26 schools taking part.  Notable performances came from Oisin Kelly, Ben Carr, Molly Paige and Ciaran Moore, Loretto Milford; Sarah Bradley Loretto Letterkenny; Carol Lafferty Thornhill College; Sean McGinley St. Eunans; Lilly Tourish St. Mary’s Derry.
