J.B.White Schools Cross Country a Huge Success


 All roads led to the Friary last Friday wherethere was a large number of participants in West Waterford’s annual schools cross country. A new record of over 650 youngsters took part in twelve cross country races held in the grounds of St Augustines College. A total of thirty two primary schools also a record and three secondary schools competed this year.  Numbers were evenly divided between the boys’ and girls’ races and the biggest field was in the 3rd class boy’s race where 103 youngsters completed the course. It was a beautiful balmy autumn evening and conditions were ideal for cross country running.


 As always competition was keen for the individual and team honours and the athletes were cheered on by a large gathering of parents and school friends. Individual honours were well distributed with athletes from twenty primary and all four secondary schools among the trophy winners.  Team honours were more widely spread this year. Scoil Garbháin Scoil Mhuire  led the way in the team events winning ten  team prizes four gold, three silver and three bronze ahead of Scoil Garbháin with 9, 5 gold and three silver  and one bronze team prize. Ballymacarbry NS were among the team mkedal winners for the first time.Well done to all the youngsters who competed last Friday night  Our thanks to our sponsor J.B. White Chartered Accountants, to St Augustine’s for the use of the Friary and to our club members and parents who helped out to ensure the smooth running of the event. Full results below
