A great effort by the Joeys boys on track and field day in Santry after some last minute coaching with Melina. Louis (60m h) and Tom (600m) both took bronze medals with Gareth taking silver also in the 600m to follow up his gold in the South Dublin cross country champions race. Best result of the day was from Alex who threw a great 10.77m to win the shot put. You can see a clip of Louis´ race on RTE here at 2.05. Photos here.

Our first run of the school year, the Clonliffe Harriers Schools XC took place at the beautiful Santry Demense. No medals on this occasion but the boys represented St. Joseph’s very well indeed with Gareth taking an outstanding 6th place(out of 200 runners!) in the 5th class race running against boys up to two years older than him. Well done everyone! Photos.
