Juvenile Cross Country League

League 1 report by Dara Carr

Beautiful weather conditions in Lusk this morning for Day 1 of the juvenile cross-country leagues. The course was tricky enough with bends and uphills but our athletes took it in their stride. A big shout out to Lusk AC who hosted today's event which ran like clockwork. Thanks to Ruth for organising the athlete's registration and numbers and Dara & Sarah for warmups. Thanks to Coach Kevin Ashe who kindly volunteered to assist the Lusk AC & Dublin athletics team with marshalling. Well done all the juvenile athletes who came today and represented LSA so well at the first Cross country race of the season. For some it was their very first cross-country race, but you wouldn’t know by how confident and comfortable they all looked out there. Huge congrats from the coaching team.
