Leinster Cross Country Results Sunday 30th October 2011

Kilkenny Athletes travelled in force to Mullingar on Sunday for Round 1 of the Leinster Cross Country Championships. Juvenile Athletes competed in the even age category races from u12 to u18 and the Seniors were competing at Novice and Masters level.

There were some fine performances in the face of stiff competition and a number of individual, club team and county team medals were brought home by the athletes.

Conor Clarke, Castlecomer (3rd) closely followed by David O Carroll, Gowran (4th) lead home the Under 12 county boy’s team to take silver. No medals in the girls U12 but Ruth Kennedy Gowran ran well to finish in 4th position.

Helen Haynes, St Josephs (9th) lead home St Josephs to take 2nd club and also Kilkenny to 2nd County in the Girls U14 race.

Hugh Morgan St Senans (2nd) had a great run to lead home club and county to the Bronze medals in the Boys U 16. Gowran athlete Rebecca Kennedy finished 2nd in the Girls under 16 leading the county to Gold Medal position. St Senans finished in club bronze medal position and Dearbhle Kearns (12th) was their first athlete home

Under 18 Winners

In the Girls U18 race Kilkenny athletes gave a magnificent performance and filled the top 3 postions . Bronagh Kearns, St Senans (1st), Mary Ellen Doyle, Gowran (2nd) and Aine Kinsella St Senans (3rd) and so secured County Gold for Kilkenny and club silver for St Senans.

Toss Hayes KCH and Conor Rochford St Senans

In the Mens Novice Race Toss Hayes KCH was 3rd and Conor Rochford St Senans was 4th.

Again a great performance by these athletes and the Leinster Novice Cross Country is one of the most competitive races on the calendar.
