Mag­nif­i­cent seven in ac­tion for Boyne

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

THE 2018 Louth Cross Coun­try pro­gramme came to an end on Sun­day, with the Louth Mas­ters event.

Al­ways an ex­cit­ing race, this year was no ex­cep­tion, with some fan­tas­tic run­ning across all the age cat­e­gories.

Those lucky enough to be over the age of 35 were el­i­gi­ble to com­pete, with seven of Boyne AC’s se­nior ath­letes don­ning the yel­low vest to rep­re­sent their club.

In the ladies 3k race, Sally Clarke ran well to fin­ish sixth over­all. Nicola Veale had a strong run to place 11th, with Cather­ine Tier­nan Bell not far be­hind in 14th.

Com­pet­ing in her first Louth Cross Coun­try race, Louise Fa­gan ran well to place 22nd over­all.

Also mak­ing their Cross Coun­try de­but, Rose­marie Dunne fin­ished 24th, fol­lowed closely by Olive Turner Car­roll in 26th.

Un­for­tu­nately the ladies team just missed out on a medal, fin­ish­ing in a fine fourth team place.

In the mens 5k race, the sole rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Boyne AC, An­drew White, ran a strong race to fin­ish in an im­pres­sive 10th place over­all.
