UN­DER 16 GIRLS SCORE AT CASTLELYONS – Lis­car­roll AC ath­letes made the trip to Castlelyons on Sun­day last to com­pete in the Cork County ju­ve­nile re­lay Cross Coun­try Cham­pi­onship. Girls’ un­der-16 did us proud to win a set of bronze medals. The four girls in­volved found the go­ing tough, be­cause none of them do cross coun­try but they put in a tremen­dous ef­fort over a 500 me­tre course. Girls in­volved were Irene Kel­legher, Aoife O’Sul­li­van, Aoibh Hogan and Ria Mur­phy.s.

Girls’ un­der-10 and un­der-12 along with boys’ un­der-10 were un­suc­cess­ful in their ef­forts but it is the tak­ing part that counts. Those, who com­peted were Emma O’Con­nell, Clara Whe­lan, Grace Mur­phy and Louise Flynn at un­der-10 and Aoib­hinn O’Reilly, Ni­amh Hen­nessy, Shona Mur­phy and Ella But­ler at un­der-12. All of those girls were run­ning up an age and the ex­pe­ri­ence will stand to them in the fu­ture. The four boys in­volved were John But­ler, Conor Blast­land, Evan Mur­phy and Fionn O’Sul­li­van. This was the fi­nal cross coun­try at county level for 2018 and ath­letes turn to Mun­ster Cham­pi­onship next, with the ju­ve­nile un­even ages at Turn­pike, Two Mile Bor­ris, Co Tip­per­ary on Sun­day, start­ing with un­der-nine girls at 11.30, ath­letes are re­quested to be there by 10.30 on the fol­low­ing Sun­day it will be the Mun­ster re­lay.
