Superb athletic performances in Midleton


Douglas Community School athletes took part in the Cork Schools Invitational Cross-Country event recently. The event was held at the Midleton CBS grounds and the school had a very successful day. Although the school were missing a lot of their athletes due to the All-Ireland Championships taking place in Derry, they performed brilliantly. The first year boys’ team won the team title led home by Alan Horgan 5th, Kevin Horan 6th, Fionn Bracken 9th and Fintan Cadogan 16th. Other great performances came from Colm Daly, Seamus Hogan, Declan O’ Herlihy and Denis Moore. The second/third year boys race was held over 2000m and here the team came a great third led by Daniel Mason, Eric O’ Neill and Conor Cronin. Other great runs came from Karl Horgan and Adam Dalton. Finally Douglas Community School had one competitor in the combined fourth/fifth/sixth year 3000m race and here Ian Tobin had a superb win. Well done to all the athletes on some superb performances.
