Ulster Schools' Cross Country Championships 2015

Congratulations to Grosvenor’s Senior Girls’ Cross Country team which was placed fifth in the team competition at the Ulster Schools’ Cross Country Championships, held at Mallusk playing fields on Tuesday 24th February. 

Within the team Lower Sixth pupil Lois Hagen, winner of the County Down Championships earlier in the month, performed commendably to achieve a tenth placed finish and thus secure qualification for the Irish Schools’ Championships in County Kildaire on 7th March, and was ably supported by Sophie Rea (29th) and Katie Allen (34th

In the boys’ events the minor team finished sixth overall while impressive individual performances were also recorded by Paul Pruzina, who finished 18th in the Senior race, and Aaron Harrison who achieved 24th position in the Inter age-group.

Well done to all involved on the day, as well as coaches Mrs Karen Kirk and Mr Andrew Gibson; we wish Lois the best of luck at the Irish School’s Championships next month.
