District Cross Country UUC 2017

Forty students ranging from Years 8-14 represented Loreto at the District Cross Country Championships on a cold, showery and windy winter day recently.  The races were held over a new course at the Ulster University, Coleraine. 

There were several notable successes for our students on the day, with several individuals and groups qualifying for the Ulster Finals.

In the Mini Girls race, Niamh McGarry (Year 8) was placed second; in the Minor Girls race Cara McLaughlin (Year 9) was placed ninth; Tolu Jide-Ojo (Year 10), meanwhile, took eighth place in the Junior Girls race.  In the older age groups, Niamh Carr (Year 12) took first place in the Intermediate Girls race and Molly Brennan (Year 13) was third in the Senior Girls race.

Among our teams, the Mini Girls (Year 8) took tenth place, the Mini Boys (Year 8) came twelfth and the Minor Girls (Year 9) took sixth place.

Well done to all the runners who took part and to the teachers who accompanied them, Mrs Maureen McCullough and Mr Eddie McCloskey.
