Annalee athletes were in action this weekend at the All Ireland Secondary Schools and Universities Cross Country Championships held in Cork Institute of Technology.  First to compete was Clodagh O'Reilly, Loreto College, Cavan, in the Intermediate race over 3500m on a very difficult course. Clodagh was making a bid for three in a row having taken the title for the last two years. Clodagh led the early race but was kept in close check by Rhona Pierce, Skerries and these two broke away from the field exchanging the pole position on a few occasions. Rhona pulled away in the last 800 meters and Clodagh finished in second place.

Next to run was Aodhagan Watters, St Patricks College, Cavan in the Intermediate boys race over 5000m. The pace was very fast in this race and with the conditions under foot deteriorating Aodhagan found the going tough but settled in the latter part of the race to finish strongly.

Cian O'Reilly and his brother Aodhagan were in action for the UCD team in the Universities competition. This was the final race of the day run over 8000m and the field was packed with quality athletes including the eventual winner John Coughlan, DCU, son of  World Champion Eamonn. The race started at a fast pace and there was no let up over the 8 km, Cian took up his position with the leading group for the early laps but lost some ground in the latter half of the race. Spurred on by the will to place well for the UCD team he found some renewed strength in the last lap to finish strongly in 12th position, helping the team to finish second to the DCU team.
