23rd November 2015- JP Williamson Wins All-American Honours in North Carolina XC

Elsewhere there was a good win for the DCTC quartet of Darragh Crossan, Matt Doherty, Connor Doherty and Cathal McLaughlin at Saturday’s North Down XC relays in Bangor and JP Williamson had a great run in Charlotte, North Carolina  at the NAIA Colleges XC National championships. Running for the Lindsey Wilson college JP finished 26th to claim a much coveted All American Honours award, by finishing inside the top thirty in a classy 8K race.

The USA domiciled Spartan became only the seventh athlete from his College to gain the award and the first since 1998 and for good measure his 25m 11s clocking on Saturday improved significantly on the 25m 23s he ran on the same course earlier this season. Hopefully he will be home for Christmas and we will see him in action next month in Gransha at the NW cross country on Saturday 19th December.
