DAY one of the Leinster Cross Country Championships took place in the beautiful setting of Avondale in County Wicklow, and representing Boyne AC in this prestigious event were Jessica Welsh and Moya McCabe.
Both girls competed in the 2,000m Under-12 race, and with fantastic flair they outran almost 100 other athletes to finish with Jessica in an impressive 49th position and Moya in 63rd.
Of the athletes representing Louth, Jessica finished fifth and Moya in seventh, contributing to Louth finishing in fourth position overall, and may have gained the two girls a spot in the All-Ireland CrossCountry event.
Day 2 of this championship takes place next Sunday in Dunboyne, while Boyne AC will hold their annual flag day this Saturday, with any support greatly received.
Boyne AC hosted their annual table quiz in The Pheasant pub recently, and with a fantastic turnout, much-needed funds were raised for the Meadowview field development fund.
