Weekend News

Abbey athletes were competing at home (refer to Seeley Report); in Liverpool and at Sligo over the weekend.

Young Jennifer McBrien had a outstanding run in the U15 girls race in the Liverpool Cross Challenge event on Saturday. This was Jennifer’s first international vest (she has competed in the London Mini-Marathon before)and justified her selection with an excellent 9th placing. Judi was rather disappointed with her performance in the junior women’s race considering that training had been going well.

The early moring drive to Sligo on Sunday proved worth while as Paul Pollock took third place in the AAI Inter Counties Junior Men’s race. The first three home gained automatic selection to the Irish Junior Men’s team for the European XC Championships in Holland in two weeks time.

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