Day 1 of county cross country a great success

A great day of cross country for all members of Waterford AC who competed in Dungarvan today. In the juveniles we had 6 teams making the medals with 4 teams winning silver and 2 winning bronze. Details in the picture below (Click on picture to open larger). Lindsey McGuire won the U 14 race with Jamie McCarthy an excellent second in the U16 race.

No teams were fielded in U14 boys, U 16 boys and both U18 boys and girls so hopefully we will have all legs to the grass for next week at the same venue for the uneven age group county finals.

NOTE: An earlier time for the start of 11:30 with races from u9 to U17.

The senior counties saw great results also with a win for the men's A team and 3rd for the B team and the ladies came 2nd. Details and pictures on our facebook page.

The medal winners were Boys U8 gold Tagh Corcoran, Boys U9 bronze for both Nathan Mackey and Andrew Scanlon, Girls U10 bronze for Orla Walsh, Girls U14 gold for Lindsey McGuire and Boys U16 silver for Hugo Blair and he helped his team mates of David McGlynn, Evan Keane and Fergus O'Brien to team gold.
