Challenge Cup AthleticC
The last meeting of the Challenge Cup was held in the school field. Charlie Gibbons did a fabulous job getting the course ready. The weather was great so all the athletes, boys and girls really enjoyed themselves.
Our history in the Athletics was not great and we knew that we would have to run very hard.
The results show;
We were very unfortunate in the relay with two boys colliding, happily there were no serious injuries. This event would not have taken place without the help of Sean Herlihy starter, Shirley Wolverston & Noleen Dunne recording and all the boys and girls who acted as judges for the runners. Well done everybody. by Head Coach: Brian Fitzpatrick
CHALLENGE CUP 2019
We started the year as defending champions. Changes were made to the competition . One waterpolo match was dropped and GAA football was introduced. The indoor part of the competition was dropped.
We knew that we would be under pressure because we had lost some good players from last year. The first meet Futsal saw us take a lead of 50 points. The 2nd meet Basketball saw us lose that lead , where both St Declan’s and ourselves were 250 points each. The last meet before Xmas saw go back into the lead with an 84 points lead. Xmas showed
|365 84 point lead
After Xmas we resumed (4th meet) with Futsal where we saw our lead maintained as all teams had the same points. The 5th meet Waterpolo saw us take two wins firm and increase our lead to 184 points . Meet 6 Basketball saw us win our two matches and increase that lead to extend it to 234points. Meet 7 saw us lose our two GAA matches and reduce our lead to 134 points. Meet 8 the last meet Athletics saw us drop the lead by 41points to leave us as champions.
