South Leinster Schools CC: Jan 24th 2013

Athletes from Kilkenny City Harriers were very much to the fore in achieving success for local schools at the South Leinster Schools Cross-country championships held in Clongowes Wood College on Thursday.

Annie O’Connor, in 4th place, was top scorer for Loreto minors who lost out, on countback, for a place in the Leinster finals.

The Loreto Juniors took first place with Grace Richardson and Jennifer O’Keeffe pacesetters for the team.

The school’s Intermediate team also finished in first place with the added kudos of having Anna Sheehan and Aoibhe Richardson winning individual gold and silver respectively. The other team members were Nicola Murphy and Margaret Caldbeck.

In the boys races St Kieran’s College showed up well – again with many KCH athletes in their ranks.

Their Junior team with Luke FitzPatrick, Eamon Fennelly, Bill Cody, John Nolan and Jack Manning won silver.

In the Intermediate race the college team won gold with Cormac Buggy, Gowran winning individual gold and Peter Lynch, KCH taking the individual silver. Michael Ryan and Patrick Maher were the other scorers.

KCH lads, Conor Mahon, Conor Quinlan and Cormac Everard back-boned the  St Kieran’s Senior team which finished in second place.

All these athletes will now go forward to the Leinster finals in Santry on 6th February.
