Sports Update – compiled by Ms. Loraine Copithorne (P.E. teacher)
Well done to the following 1st year athletes: Jane Sinnott, Flora Doran, Eimear Halpin and Eimer Love. All four girls recently competed in the Leinster Schools combined events indoor competition held in the National Indoor Arena, Dublin on 24 October 2017. The girls competed in five combined events: 60m hurdles, long jump, high jump, 800m and shot putt.
The hockey season commenced with an away trip to Kilkenny College just before the midterm break. Three matches were up for grabs including Minor A, Minor B and Junior B. The Junior B girls were very unlucky to lose a very tight and evenly balanced game on a 1-0 scoreline. Minor A and Minor B teams were also unlucky in their respective matches. All players showcased great determination and team spirit, setting the way for a good season ahead.
The Junior and Senior Girls travelled to Presentation School, Wexford for their respective league encounters. Both teams were unfortunate in their games. Huge positives can be taken from both performances as the girls focus towards upcoming games.
