Yesterday Mallusk hosted the Ulster Schools' Cross Country Championships and Nendrum had two very worthy representatives. Joel Chambers was second last year and he was certainly looking to make amends in the minor race. Up against his fierce rival and the winner from last year he was aggressive in his approach only to be out sprinted in the final stages of the race. Although slightly disappointed Joel is very eager to seek revenge as the two will both be head to head again in the Irish Schools' Finals in Waterford on the 10th March. We wish Joel every success for this race.
Casey Miskelly also competed in the minor age group and she finished a very meritable 32nd in a high quality field of 108 finishers.
Congratulations to both Joel and Casey for bringing success to Nendrum.
