CROSS COUNTRY: Another weekend of cross country competition took place in Co. Cork on Sunday. This was the first Munster competition of the season and the glorious weather conditions brought a hugh number of athletes in Juveniles and Novice/U23 categories.
St. Brendan's AC had 5 juveniles in Boys U10 category competing as individual and as a team for Club and Kerry: Aaron Horgan, Zach Walshe, Eoghan O'Flaherty, Matthew O'Sullivan and Darragh O'Flaherty.
With the huge numbers on the starting line it was a sprint from the start and trying to settle into a rhythm and not trip over. Our boys finished in positions: 31, 32, 93, 111 and 146 out of 200 starting.
Well done to all 5 boys, especially Matthew and Darragh who stepped up from U9 category to make a St.Brendan's AC team for the Munster competition. Thanks to all the parents who travelled and supported our athletes on the day and for commitments to help them to fulfill their full potential.
