ATHLETICS

 

MANNING CUP 

Our athletics team take part in the Manning Athletics event in Bushfield, where we compete against pupils from seven other local schools in a variety of athletic events.  These events included the long jump, ball throw, hurdles, sprint and long distance running and relay events. 

There is always a wonderful display of athleticism on the night by the boys and we were delighted to be crowned overall winners in the boy's category in 2022 and 2023. We were awarded the John Manning perpetual trophy and are thrilled to have retained our title.  Well done to all involved.

Cross County Championships 2022-23

Well done to our cross country athletics teams who participated in the Galway Cross Country Championship series.  Following stellar performances over tough terrain by both the junior and the senior teams in the preliminary round, both teams qualified for the finals in Renmore.  On occasion, despite unfavourable weather, the boys once again ran a fantastic race. 

The junior team qualified for the Connaught Final finishing in 1st position with the senior team narrowly losing out.  The Connaught Final was held in Longford and once again, the boys represented themselves and our school magnificently.  They finished in third place - a wonderful achievement.
