Competitive Middle Distance F4Y group at Meath Cross Country Championships 2019 – Oct 6th and 13th

The Even Ages Meath Championships were held in Oldbridge and hosted by Cilles AC on Sunday 6th October 2019.

Injuries and other commitments robbed us of having teams in both the girls and boys u14. As a result, Kate Gormley was the lone u14 running in the 2500m event and she equipped herself very well in a big field to battle to a good finishing position.

Three under 14 boys lined up for their 2,500m race. Ciaran McCormack led the club team home to to grab a hard fought individual Bronze medal. Jed Collins ran very well to finish 8th while Dylan Ryan, who was running up a year, battled all the way to the line.

We had a strong under girls under 16 team lining up and they duly delivered a team Gold Medal. Led home by Kayla Ryan in the bronze medal position after a good run, she was ably supported by Sophie Dolan just behind her in 4th after a strong performance, Holly Conlon who ran a solid race in 6th , Aoife McCormack who battled hard to 13th and Aleah Kelly who stuck at it throughout to get a top 20 finish. Well done girls.

Bonnie McFeat and Katie Green lined up for theU18/Junior race over 4,000m which was run with the Novice event and both performed very well. Katie grabbed an individual Bronze medal in the Junior event after an impressive performance and Bonnie was just behind her in 5th after a strong showing.

They were supported by Helen Delaney to a team gold. Well done girls.

The Uneven Ages Meath Championships were hosted by Fr Murphy’s in Athboy on Sunday 13th October 2019.

A smaller group were on duty at these champs and the training group had 2 of its members in the u13 event over 2,000m and both Hannah Brown and Amy O’Reilly ran very well on the day in a tough field of athletes.

Dylan Ryan lined up in the u13 boys event, also over 2,000m and ran to a solid 9th place in a very high quality field.

Kayla Ryan was running up an age to compete in the U17 race over 4,000m and ran to a very solid 5th place in a hotly contested race. Katie Green was also on duty in this event but unfortunately injury forced her withdrawal well into the race.

Bonnie McFeat lined up in the u19 event and equipped herself very well delivering a very solid run to grab a Silver medal on the day to tee her up for the Leinster Championships. Well done Bonnie.
