LIMERICK Athletic Club’s Rachel Hosey is Limerick’s number one U14 Girl in cross country running for 2014.
She also secured the position as one of Munster’s top ten juvenile cross country athletes following her fantastic performance at the Glo Health Even Age Inter County Cross Country Championships held at Dundalk IT on Sunday November 23, 2014.
Rachel ran an impressive race across the course, she was challenged throughout, yet remaining calm and collected she held her position to finish in the first third of athletes from across the island of Ireland.
Of the almost 150 juvenile athletes who qualified for this national event by their placing positions at county and provincial level, Rachel’s consistent performance ensured that she is the top cross country athlete of her age to emerge from Limerick and her achievements have placed her among Munster’s top ten. This included a silver medal at the Munster Juvenile 3000m on October 26 which earned LAC an elusive podium finish for the category.
Limerick Athletic Club wish to congratulate Rachel on her successful cross country season and the entire community of LAC athletes and coaches are immensely proud of the deserving accolades awarded to her during 2014.
