Huge congratulations to all our pupils who participated in and had phenomenal success representing our school at the Cork City Sports today!
Girls races were held at the morning session and by early afternoon an impressive haul of trophies were already making their way back to Enniskeane! In the individual races Jada won gold, Alanah and Michaela won silver and Zoe won bronze! As a gold medal winner, Jada then qualified to race in the county quarter final finishing this race in a hugely impressive third place and just outside the County Final qualification criteria which was the first two past the line! The winning didn’t just stop there! In the girls relay race the St. Mary’s Central School team of Aimee, Ella, Lucy and Ola finished in 2nd place securing silver for all four members of the team! Showing remarkable poise and power throughout each of the legs coupled with seamless baton exchanges, the girls powered home in impressive fashion to secure 2nd place!

The boys races took place in the afternoon session and they also delivered outstanding performances! In the individual races Darragh won gold and Mason, Ben and Finn won bronze! Like Jada, as a gold medal winner Darragh also qualified to race in the county quarter final. Here he again showed incredible speed and determination and these qualities secured him a 2nd place finish but most importantly the opportunity to run in the County U7 Final among a field of 8 elite athletes; the 8 fastest runners in the county of Cork at his age group! In the County Final Darragh wasn’t among the medal winners but he did cross the line in a hugely impressive 5th place! A remarkable achievement in a hugely competitive and prestigious competition!
Again the winning didn’t stop there! In the boys relay race the St. Mary’s Central School team of Mason, Noah, Adam and Caden finished in 1st place securing gold for all four members of the team! In a thrilling race, they displayed athleticism, teamwork, determination and flawless baton exchanges to secure top spot on the podium!

Well done to you all!
