Wexford Senior Cross Country Championships, Coolgreaney, 13-Oct-2019

Well done to both our Senior Ladies and Mens Cross Country teams today. Beth O’Connor, Sonia Byrne, Theresa MacDonald, Katie Murphy & Aine Cullen were all fantastic and came close to winning a team medal.
The GOLD medal mens team were as follows..to the tune of “Dancing at the crossroads”….there was Joe Lillis, Brendan Lyng, David Kehoe, Alan O’Connor, John McGrath, Paul Doran, Sean Murphy, Aedan Rogers, George Delaney, Pat Murray, Colin Kearney, Pat O’Callaghan, Fabian Flood, Ted Flannelly, John Kent and Emmett Malone…Striders heroes, one and all. For 40 or so minutes, you had Coolgreaney rockin’ today.
There’s been a lot of bumps in the road since a young Ted helped the last Striders team to win this, in the early 80’s. Well done to everybody who played a part in taking the Striders from zero-to-hero, in the last ten years. Thanks to a lot of hard work we have a thriving senior section and the best bunch of kids that any club could wish for.
Well done to SBR for setting a remarkable 9-in-a-row record, raising the bar in Wexford cross country athletics and making today a thrilling spectacle.
