Gold and Silvers for DCS in Munster XC


Douglas Community School athletes competed at the 2nd leg of the Munster Juvenile Cross-Country championships held at Waterford IT over the weekend. It proved to be a very tough course with some long hills and mucky patches.

Alan O Donovan (pictured) was one of the stars of the day finishing in 2nd place in the u13 2500m race.

The u15 team came 3rd led by great runs from John Stout, Sean Barber, Daniel Hurley, Luke Horgan and Richard Santry.

Our u17 team won the gold medals with outstanding races from Liam Harris in 2nd place, Jamie O Connell in 6th, Stephen Cotter in 20th and Luke Varian in 23rd.

Finally the u19 team competed over the 6000m course and finished a superb 2nd led by John Durcan in 6th place and other great performances from Eoin Bourke in 10th, Brendan Couch and Leon Domoney.

The next races for the teams are the All Ireland Cross-Country championships taking place in Rathoath Co Meath on November 25th.
