OISIN KELLY OF CRANFORD AC WINS GOLD AT NATIONAL CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS

Last Sunday Cranford athletes competed at the National Inter Counties and Juvenile Cross Country Championships in Santry.

On a good course in bright sunshine the Cranford athletes had a great start to the day when Oisin Kelly came home in first place to claim the National title in the u11 boys race.  Oisin has been brilliant all year winning gold medals at the Donegal and Ulster Championships so this was the icing on the cake for Oisin to become an All Ireland Champion.  Oisin was closely followed by Liam Donnelly in 27th position, Max Roarty in 44th, Cian McMenamin in 45th and their other two team mates Oran McMenamin and Johnny Trearty who also placed well earning their team a Silver medal.  The boys were also part of the Donegal and Ulster teams where they won Silver and Bronze medals respectively.    Next up was Molly Trearty in the u13 girls race.  Molly had a great race and came home in 47th position earning her a well deserved Ulster team medal.  In the u13 boys Johnny McGroddy had a great run to come home in an impressive 5th position earning him an individual National medal and he was also part of the Donegal and Ulster teams that claimed Silver medals in this event.  Dylan Dorrian and Eoghan Moore also ran well in this race but unfortunately Dylan took a bad knock to the ground while in 10th position and was unable to continue while Eoghan had a good strong race earning himself a Silver medal as part of the Donegal Team.   Rionach Giles and Michelle McDevitt were up next in the u15 girls and both ran well running out of their age group and finished strongly in a large field of runners.  Eleanor Trearty had a good strong run in the U17 girls event.   Kevin Logue also ran very well to come home in 48th position in the u17 boys race, again both athletes running out of their age.  Last up in the juvenile races was Grace Trearty competing in the u19 girls race finishing in 44th position after a good strong finish.  Lucy Backus was our final athlete running In the Novice Ladies race.  Lucy had a great run and finished in an impressive 46th position in a very strong field of runners.  Congratulations to all the Cranford athletes for qualifying for this event and for bringing home an impressive 20 medals which included 1 Gold, an individual 5th place National medal, 13 Silver and 5 Bronze.  Big thanks to the Coaches for all their hard work throughout the year and to the parents who travelled on the day.
