County Masters and Novice B 2016
COUNTY CHAMPION - MICHAEL COTTER
Posted: 7/11/2016 -
4 of West Muskerry A.C. Senior Group were in action on Sunday last in the County Master and Novice B Cross Country Championships 2016 in Riverstick, Co. Cork. The course was in excellent condition which made for some very exciting racing.
Michael Cotter and Jerry O Mahony were competing in the 0/50 Men category and it was a really exciting race. Both men settled into their pace in the early laps. On the final 2 laps Michael started to gain ground on the athletes in front of him. On the final lap he gave all and battled in the finish line with Youghal athlete but Michael came out on top. He was well deserving of the gold medal and crowned County Champion. Jerry O Mahony also battled home and was just out of the medals on this occasion finishing 4th in his category.
Jeremy Kelleher and Jerh O` Sullivan also had great runs in the Novice B county. Both battled their way through the field and again on the final lap made up ground and both athletes bettered their times from their previous race. Well done to both.
Best of Luck to all the athletes competing in the Munster Uneven Age Cross Country Championships in Limerick Race Course on Sunday next the 13th of November.
