Juveniles – Winter Relay Season at Gowran and the NIA

It has been relay season for the Dunboyne AC Juveniles with athletes from the club participating in both Leinster Cross Country relays in Gowran, Kilkenny and the Mid Sutton anniversary games at the National Indoor Arena, Abbotstown.

Leinster Cross Country Relays – Sunday 12th January:

In Gowran our U12 girls put in a cracking team effort and came home is a super 4th place just outside the medals.

Well done girls, a super achievement at provincial level.

Our U12 boys team, who have put in medal winning performances throughout the cross country season, earned themselves a bronze medal on the day.

A massive well done to Harry Drake, Fionn O’Reilly, Tom Gormley and George Comerford on another provincial team medal.
