There were some excellent individual and team performances by Newbridge AC at the novice and masters cross country championships in Suncroft. It was a glorious sunny day and a little unseasonal for autumn but the competition went ahead anyway!
First off was the women’s novice race with Hannah Linney running a great race for second overall followed by Kate Burke in 5th, Aisling Browne in 6th and Anna Burke in 9th. This brought them second team on the day, within one point of Le Cheile so it was a close one…next time!
Aisling Brown finished 5th in the masters race and Claire Burke was 10th. Unfortunately we didn’t have a full team but in the individual standings Aisling Browne was 1st M1.
In the novice mens race the first Newbridge AC finisher was Conor Tiernan running a strong race for 2nd overall followed by Alan Sammon in 4th, Dion Whelan Moore in 7th, Michael Browne in 9th, Evan O’Connor in 19th and Denis Buckley in 20th. The team of Conor Tiernan, Alan Sammon, Dion Whelan Moore and Michael Brown were first.
In the mens masters race Brian Byrne was first overall with Alan Sammon a strong 3rd followed by Ciaran Carr in 5th, Eoin Brett in 5th, Michael Coyle in 6th, Ivan O’Connor in 16th, Denis Buckley in 17th and Albert Keenan in 20th.
Newbridge AC “A” were first team and Newbridge AC “B” were 3rd team.
Additional individual awards were 1st M1 Bryan Byrne and 3rd M1 Ciaran Carr.
Alan Sammon was 1st M2 and Michael Coyle 2nds.
