THE Scoil Uí Mhuirí athletics team had a great outing to the North Leinster Cross-Country Schools Championships in DCU last Wednesday.
Represented by teams in the under 14 girls and boys and under 17 girls and boys, plus two boys in the under 15 race, most were competing in their first schools cross-country competition and they acquitted themselves very well.
The Minor girls Under-14s were unlucky, with one of their team members sick on the day, but successful individually as Seoda Matthews finished eighth out of 104 participants and therefore qualified for the Leinster Schools Championships in two weeks' time.
