Malcolm Cup XC

With her schools hockey cancelled Jennifer McBrien was able to compete in the cross country promotion at Ballyclare instead. The U15 boys and girls race was combined and thankfully gave Jennifer some company as she raced the leading boys over the two lap course. At the end of the first lap Jennifer was shoulder to shoulder with the first and second boys and only three second adrift of second place (13secs off first) as she crossed the finishing line. Her time of 11.40 for the two miles would have placed her first in the U17girls event with a massive 15 seconds to spare.

Kirstie Bell has been running well in training and was rather disappionted with her first lap in the U17girls two miles. A much stronger second lap however pulled her up into 8th place and hopefully gave her the confidence to go out faster next time.

Abbey Athletic Club was formed at the start of the new millennium by a group of relatively young athletes.
