On January 24th, 25 members of our Afterschool Athletics club travelled to Phoenix Park to compete in the biggest event on our Cross-Country calendar. On the day, we had students representing the school in a range of categories, including the Inter girls, Junior boys, junior girls and minor boys’ sections.
Conditions on the day were difficult, with high winds and distances of 1km – 3km. Despite the challenges, all of the JSS students rose to the occasion and competed excellently on the day. The standout result of the day was our junior girl’s team placing 2nd in the team event, with Zoe Van Den Bergh getting the highest individual placement with a 3rd place medal.
Athletics training continues every Thursday after school. With the Cross-Country season coming to a close, our attention will now turn to some of the Track and Field events that will take place over the next few weeks and months.
