Weekly report from Thurles Crokes Athletic Club

Munster Juvenile Relays
Thurles Crokes U16 Boys Team followed up their silver medals at the Munster Cross-country championships in Kerry with more silver at the Munster Relays in Clarecastle, Clare on Sunday. The team of Emmett Fogarty, Jack O’Mara, Darragh Minogue and Alex Crowley were always to the fore after Emmett’s lead off leg, with Jack attacking and snatching the lead on the 2nd leg. Thurles stayed cometive through strong runs from Darragh and Alex and finished just 2 seconds off the winners. Excellent running from the entire team!
