Co. Down District Cross Country Championships

Congratulations to Grosvenor pupil Lois Hagen, Lower Sixth, who was victorious in the Senior Girls’ category at the County Down District Cross Country Championships, held at Delamont Country Park on the afternoon of Wednesday 4th February.

In addition to Lois’ superb performance the Senior Girls team also secured an overall finish of second, helped by the impressive performances of additional members Sophie Rea (9th place) and Katie Allen, who finished in 13th position.

In the boys races standout Grosvenor performances came from the Minor Boys’ team which finished second overall, with Andrew Hagen placing 5th, Steven Wright finishing 6th, Gareth Campbell coming home in 8th and Ethan Crawford securing a laudable 15th place finish.  In addition form five pupil Aaron Harrison also performed superbly to finish 5th in the Inter category while Paul Pruzina, Upper Sixth, recovered well from an early fall to place 7th in the Senior age group.

Well done to all of the above, as well as their coaches Mrs Karen Kirk, Mrs Linda McIlvenny and Mr Andrew Gibson, without whose efforts the competitors would not have fared so well; we now wish them the best of luck at the Ulster Schools' Championships which will be held at Mallusk Playing Fields on Tuesday 24th February.
