Cross-Country – D.S.D. Cross Country Competition, Oct 2022
D.S.D. Cross Country Competition
Wednesday, 19th October 2022
The D.S.D. Cross Country Competition took place on 19th October in Marlay Park. Despite rain, thunder and lightning our runners lined up to compete in the 2nd year race and the 3rd/4th year races. Originally both races were scheduled for 2000m however due to the bad weather, the organisers shortened the events to just over 1000m each. The resulting races around the muddy, winding track were at a much higher pace than longer cross-country races.
2nd Year race: Tom O’Donovan (2nd Year) was first home to score for the second years in 8th place. Cameron Fallon and Jose Carlos (2nd Year) came home in 10th and 22nd. Having competed in Cross Country in Spain, Jose Carlos did well on his first muddy cross country course through Marlay Park. Calum Burke (2nd Year) finished in 30th position.
Our 3rd Year team competing with TY students performed well winning individual and team prizes. Charlie White (2nd), Callum Downes (4th), Adam Kennedy (5th), Daniel Sheridan (10th), Jack Spain (11th), Cillian Staunton (16th), Tom Hayden (25th), Jamie Browne-Lynch (38th), Donnacha Barry (39th), and Lorcan Lawless (40th) (all 3rd Year) contributed to a 1st place finish in the team event.
This was a great start to the season.
We thank our coaches Mr. Fagan and Eddie McDonagh for their preparation of the teams.
