The winning habit continued for Caron Ryan at the weekend when she raced the first mile leg for Trinity College Dublin at the Universities Road Relays which were held in Maynooth on Saturday last. Caron posted a time of 6:13 in the 1-mile first leg, giving the team a solid 5th place at the changeover amongst the 26 teams in action. The team covered the 1-2-2-1 miles relay in a combined time of 34:15 to win the coveted silver medals, just a minute off the leaders DCU and a close 6 seconds ahead of the bronze medallists UCC.

Also in action, Jack Miskella raced the first mile leg of the men's race (1-2-3-2-1 miles) in a fine time of 5:27 to help the NUIG 'A' team to 5th place amongst the 27 teams in a combined time of 45:58 while John Cormican raced the same leg for the TCD 'B' team in an impressive 5:34 to help the team to 16th place in a combined time of 49:31.

Well done also to John O'Connor on his usual brilliant photos, full albums at his flickr website.
