2012 Cross Country Success

Well done to all who participated in the Donegal School’s Cross Country Championship in Finn Valley recently, returning with a magnificent haul of 11 individual and three team medals. The U-9 Boys and U-11 girls won a bronze team award while a first, second, fourth, fifth and eighteenth place finish (out of a field in excess of 100 runners) ensured a gold award for our U-11 Boy’s team. Well done to all.
We look forward to the Ulster Championships in Fintra in November. Training will continue for all athletes.
