West Leinster Schools Cross Country Championships
Mount Sackville's Cross Country school teams were in action on Wednesday 21st January in the Phoenix park and put on a colourful show of perseverance in pink.
It was our biggest group of determined young ladies to have ever taken part in this event, with almost 50 students involved.
The school won 3 of the 4 team awards, the best we have achieved in a number of years in this competition. The three teams have all qualified for the Leinster finals which are on Wednesday 11th February in Santry Woods.
In the individual event, Deirbhile O'Reilly won the minor race and Aisling Mohan and Vanessa O'Connor were placed 2nd in their races, the Junior and Senior races respectively.
Our senior girls were gritty and graceful in action and sent a powerful message to their junior colleagues to keep up activity, even in senior cycle.
A big thanks also to a great bunch of lively 4th years, Caoimhe Doherty, Maeve O'Keefe, Dearbhla Murphy, Emily O'Neil, Rachael Dunne, Orlagh Griffin, and Melissa Gilmartin who looked after all of our athletes at the event and never once complained about the cold!
Well done to you all.
