Any parents who are interested in coaching are invited to meet with current Coaches tonight (Oct 23rd) at 8.40pm at the track for a short, informal chat. As the Club is expanding, we need and welcome new people to come on board. No experience is necessary as new coaches are always paired with an experienced coach in order to learn the ropes. 
Every little helps, so even if you can only do one hour a week - it would be gratefully appreciated.

If you can't make tonight but would like to get involved, please call Sandra on 087-6368289 or speak to any coach at the track.

The first round of the Kildare Cross Country Championships took place in Suncroft last Sunday and Celbridge AC had a huge number of athletes taking part in all races. In the first race of the day the club put out 13 girls in the under 10 race. Emily Quigley, Olivia Gallagher, Niamh Gannon, Anna Burns, Grace Lauhoff, Lily Daniere Doyle, Erin Kyle, Laragh Martin, Hannah Merrick, Chloe Kavanagh, Rachel Kearns, Charlie McKeon and Christina McKeon all put in a great performance but were not in medal position. In the boys under 10 race Ben Higgins, Brendan Moloney, Gavin Walsh, Oisin May, Jack Drumgoole, and Peter Goss took to the start line and performed very well to finish in 4th place. next up was the under 12 girls and with their experience from last year the team secured Silver medals with Eleanor Clancy taking an individual Bronze the remainder of the team Caoimhe May, Ella Copeland, Rosa Whelan, Nina Martin, Monica Doda, Grace Maughan, Georgia Mooney, Taylor Beatty Rachel Lauhoff, Leah Murphy and Rhea Donnelly made up the team, Credit must also be given to Ellen Gannon who despite being sick turned up to cheer on her team mates. In the under 12 boys race Fionn Reilly, Paddy Merrick, Alex Drumgoole and Reece Flanagan ran a great race but were not in a medal position. The girls under 14 were next up and Sarah Rose Merrick, Elena O'Toole, Rebecca Carroll, Hannah Kearns and Laoise Lenehan put in a great performance and despite Laoise  picking up an injury and being unable to finish the team took Bronze medals. In the under 14 boys race George Lowen ran a great race to take the Kildare County Gold and the team of Eoin McConnon, Calum Brehony and Nathan Parameswaran took Bronze Medals. Niamh O'Connor was the only Celbridge athlete who competed in the under 16 girls race and Niamh put in her usual strong performance but did not make the medals on this occasion. In the under 16 boys race Cian May took the individual bronze and help the team of Eoin Goss and Andrew Carroll take team Bronze. The under 18 boys race was a hard fought affair which saw Conor Farrell finish very strong to take an individual Silver medal however when four athletes had crossed the line the officials thought that they had been directed to the finish line too early and marked the race null and void the remainder of the team of Jack Kyle, Robert Clampett, Liam King and Ciaran O'Connor were definitely heading for a podium finish. The Novice women team of Rebecca Gannon, Katie Byrne, Moira Diggin and Sinead O'Connor  along with the Novice mens team of Michael Comer, David McMahon, Michael Tynan and Shane Hunt also competed for the club however we are awaiting the final results for these teams. It is great to see such strong teams competing for the club and we hope going forward that we can encourage young athletes to train for and run cross country, Bernie Kavanagh and Dave Clancy are now training younger athletes who wish to concentrate on endurance running and if any young athlete expresses an interest do not hesitate to talk to any of the coaches. The next round of the Kildare Cross Country Championships for uneven age athletes takes place on Sunday 12th starting at 12pm in Kildare town, check back for directions closer to the weekend.
