On the 18th of December 2016 the Clare “B” Cross Country Championships were held in St. Flannan’s College Ennis. When we all arrived at the course we walked around it to see what it was like. After that we warmed up and we were ready to start running. First was the U-9 girls but B.M.O.H had no one in that race.
Our first athlete to go to the starting line was Luke Deegan in the U-9 boys. He came in to the finish line in 8th place. Second was the U-11 girls and Amy Chaplin was running. But she had no luck. The U-11 boys were next, Harry and Marcus were running but we had no joy in their race either. Then third was the U-13 girls. Louise O’Mahony, Chloe Chaplin and Emma O’Neill were running. They ran an excellent race and Louise came in first place. Next was the boys U-13, Dara Fitzgerald had a great race and came in to the finish line in 5th place. Fourth was the U-15 girls but we had no one running in that race. Next was the U-15 boys. A former Kilmurry pupil, Mark O’Mahony and Darragh Toomey were running. Darragh Toomey came in 5th place and Mark came 7th.
It was a great day and we all enjoyed it.
