Our SCT got their cam­paign in the Vinny Mur­ray Cup off to a win­ning start re­cently with a well de­served win against Tem­pleogue Col­lege. Last Thurs­day we played Sk­er­ries Com­mu­nity Col­lege in Sut­to­ni­ans RFC in our sec­ond round tie. In tuff win­try con­di­tions we came through the fix­ture on a favourable score line. Our next fix­ture is the semi-fi­nal of the Vinny Mur­ray Cup against Mount Tem­ple on Tues­day 22nd Jan­uary in Black­rock RFC at 2.30pm.


Our en­try this year to the BT Young Sci­en­tist Ex­hi­bi­tion came from 2nd Year stu­dent Wil­liam Moore. Wil­liam is par­tic­i­pated in the Ex­hi­bi­tion last week with his project en­ti­tled, *'Weight Dis­tance and En­ergy used from a run­ning shoe - to an iPhone app'*. His project mea­sures a per­son's weight us­ing piezo-elec­tric de­vices em­bed­ded in a run­ning shoe, which can then be used to cal­cu­late dis­tance trav­elled and pro­vide data on en­ergy ex­pended dur­ing ex­er­cise.


Con­grat­u­la­tions to Hu­bert Gal­lagher (6th Year) who has been se­lected to rep­re­sent Ire­land at the FIS World Ski­ing Cham­pi­onships. He will com­pete in the Gi­ant Slalom and Slalom dis­ci­plines where he will take on the World’s elite from a host of coun­tries. The Cham­pi­onships take place in Sch­lad­ming, Aus­tria in Fe­bru­ary. Also in ski­ing Gar­reth Reilly (2nd year) will be com­pet­ing in the 21st An­nual Chil­dren’s Bor­rufa Cup in An­dorra this month. We wish both our in­ter­na­tion­als the best of luck in their re­spec­tive events.


Con­grat­u­la­tions to all ath­letes that took part in the DCU In­vi­ta­tional Race last Wed­nes­day.
