The team was led home by Tom Breslin (41st), followed by Devan Morrisey (84), Jack McDonnell (87), Tadgh O Brien (97) and Alister Anith (101).

A 13th place finish was secured, however once the National Teams were removed from the standings 8th place was awarded to the Whitehall men.

It was the trip of a lifetime where the young Irish athletes had the opportunity to test themselves against the best schools athletes in the world.
