Pupils at Dunoon Grammar School are celebrating success at the recent Inverclyde Cross Country Championships held earlier this month in Birkmyre Park, Kilmacolm.
Second year twins Nuala and Cliona McCheyne finished first and second in the S2 race, with Niamh Doherty winning the S1 girl’s race and Alan Mollins claiming second in the S1 boys race.
When asked what it like is to race against each other the girls shrugged and said “It’s nice to have that bit of extra support and we push each other, we are VERY competitive… We don’t think of it as racing a sister but instead just another competitor.’
Nuala who came first said ‘It was a really good experience to run against people from other schools’ whereas Cliona said ‘I’m now looking forward to the up incoming indoor track season’
Head Teacher Mr David Mitchell commented:
“Against very tough opposition, from across the country, four pupils from DGS have returned with medals. We are delighted with the success they have claimed – through their talent and determination – and as a school we wish to congratulate them and wish them well for the remainder of the season”.
