Leinster Schools Cross Country in Santry

Well done to everyone who competed in todays Leinster Schools Cross Country in Santry, Demesne. There were some promising performances from Skerries AC athletes with a number securing qualification for the All Ireland Schools in March. Conditions were ideal for distance running with little or no wind and near perfect underfoot conditions for the time of year, making for some very fast races.
