Perfect Cross Country conditions in Trialough, Fanad for Cranford AC

All roads lead to Fanad on Sunday for the Donegal uneven age Cross Country Championships on what was a glorious day on an even better Cross country track. Well done and thanks to Milford AC for hosting such an excellent event.

First up for Cranford were the u9 girls of Karen Neely and Lucy McGarvey. Both girls had a great race with Lucy coming home in 6th place earning herself a medal. In the u9 boys race there were more medals with Michael Moore leading the boys home in 10th position closely followed by Cranfords new recruits James Travers in 12th and Daithi Cannon in 14th with Killian Caldwell and Diarmuid Gallagher finishing off this pack.

In the u11 girls race Miah Fletcher continued her excellent form coming home with a silver medal with Clodagh Neely also having a very good race finishing in 8th place closely followed by Blaithnaid Gallagher and newcomer Natasha McGettigan.

The first gold of the day went to Caolan McFadden in the u11 boys race where Caolan had to dig deep and showed real grit to maintain his lead throughout the race with Ryan McMenamin and Dean Hewitson also running very well.

There was a bronze team medal for our u13 girls with good performances from Caitlin O’Hara finishing in 15th place, Teresa Mullen in 18th with Nazara McFadden, Caoimhe Neely, Orla Neely and Ciara Donnelly all having good strong runs.

There were more medals in the u13 boys with Oisin Kelly having an excellent race leading the boys home in 1st position earning him a Gold medal and after a great run was closely followed by Liam Donnelly in 3rd earning him a Bronze medal with Max Roarty running very well coming home in 4th, Cian McMenamin in 10th, Oran McMenamin in 15th, Conor Neely in 22nd and Johnny Trearty in 25th which secured these young boys a Gold team medal.

Molly Trearty looked very impressive in the u15 girls race and stayed with the lead pack throughout and after a strong finish earned herself a well deserved Bronze medal with Hannah Logue coming home in 20th place.

Our third Gold of the day went to Johnny McGroddy who continued his excellent form to win the u15 boys race with Eoin Logue having a great race to come home in 5th place closely followed by Eoghan Moore in 14th with Allan Neely and Barry Donnelly also running well to earn these boys a Silver team medal.

Our final race of the day was the u19 boys race with Kevin Logue and Eoin Kelly both having good strong runs to come home in 4th and 6th place in what was a very competitive race and one that the boys will be able to compete in again next year.

As always thanks to the coaches Eamon Giles, Ernie McElhinney, Joe Boyce, Rose Gavaghan and Bridie Trearty for all their support and to the parents who came along to cheer on the competitors.

Next up for Cranford is the Even Age Ulster Championships which takes place in Rostrevor in two weeks time.
