The Leinster Schools Cross Country took place in Santry Demense on Wednesday 16 February. Weather conditions were punishing with plenty of wet and windy conditions to complement the hilly course. The first race to get underway for Gonzaga was the Minor boys 2000 metres. Liam Glynn lead the team home followed by Callum Ó Tuama, Lorcan Cooney, Theo Madigan, Leo Estevez Neill, Liam Bernin and Ces Collins. Overall, the team finished in 14th position.
The next race for Gonzaga was the Junior boys 3000 metres. Alex Ó Tuama ran bravely, just finishing outside automatic all-Ireland individual qualification on 16th position. Murrough McMahon followed 23rd position. The team placed 6th overall with Cillian Ó Mir and Mark Buggy.
