What a day for SHS athletics.History was made on February 24th when the O'Brien - Aoife and Saoirse sisters won individual gold medals at Minor and Inter levels today in Sligo Racecourse.Over a challenging course both girls blitzed all the opposition with commanding, controlled performances.

Overall it was probably our greatest Cross Country day as our Minor girls team of Saoirse O'Brien, Aisling Halpin Fahy, Anna O'Riain, Lorraine Wallace and Aisling Browne also scooped team gold thus qualifying for the All Irelands.

Junior girls team of Ellen Noonan, Sarah Staunton, Kate Moran, Sophie Flynn and Lara Kennedy Jones put in an equally impressive effort to finish 3rd team overall thus qualifying for the All Irelands. 
The Inter girls team of Aoife O'Brien,Orla Harrison, Elisha Gannon, Fiona Bree, Sarah Mulchrone, Emma Murphy and Ruth Gallagher also finished 3rd team overall thus also qualifying for the All Irelands!!!!

The All Ireland Cross Country championships takes place on Saturday March 7th in the grounds of Clongowes Wood College, Clane,
