‘Brother’ Clonliffe Harris Cross Country Invitational Race
Blackrock College’s first race of the year this Wednesday October 11th at Santry was a highly competitive one, with schools from all over the country competing. St Malachy’s of Belfast and St Aidan’s of Whitehall particularly stood out and are teams that we hope to compete against later in the year at the All Ireland. In both senior and Intermediate Blackrock came 4th and were narrowly beaten to team medals. This race always acts as a good place to start our season and remind ourselves of the excellent standard waiting for us outside of East Leinster. All athletes performed admirably and know there is a lot more work to do. Our next race is the Blackrock College invitational on November 8th. Particular thanks to Eddie MacDonagh, Mr Rowsome and Ms.Whyte for their preparation of the boys.
