Congratulations to all of the members of the SHS Athletics team that participated in the North Connacht Cross Country Competition held on Wednesday January 29th.

The team displayed excellent performances achieving success across all the age categories.  Ellen Moran claimed 1st in the Senior Category.  Ellen Noonan came 3rd in the Minor category while Aoife O’Brien claimed 3rd place in the Junior category. 

Both the Minor and Junior teams qualified for the Connacht Finals in February.

Strong performances by Ruth Gallagher and Jennifer Chambers saw them both qualify in the Intermediate category for the Connacht finals.

Overall the team performances on the day were very strong and a credit to the girls hard work and dedication to training. 

Thanks to their mentor and coach Mr O’Boyle who also accompanied them on the day.
