Superb day of Badminton
COLÁISTE CHILL MHANTÁIN welcomed a number of teams to the school on January 14 to participate in an U-19 blitz with a boys and girls competition being run. Participating in the boys blitz were the host school Coláiste Chill Mhantáin, St. Kevin's Dunlavin and East Glendalough School.
In the girls section it was Dominican Convent Wicklow, Loreto Bray and East Glendalough School.
The boy's competition was held in the morning and proved to be a tight contest throughout between C.C.M.A and E.G.S with it all to play for in the final doubles match.
It ended all square in the competition with both teams winning 13 matches each topping the table ahead of St Kevins Dunlavin and C.C.M B.
Much like a boxing match it came down to a count back, with C.C.M A winning it on the overall points scored. The team for C.C.M was; Enda Dempsey, David Stapleton, Seán O'Callaghan and Daniel 'Jack' Montgomery.
The girls also had a great competition with very competitive games throughout the day.
This competition again was all up for grabs going into the final round of games after some wonderful displays of power and skill.
In the end the Dominican Convent Wicklow prevailed and were crowned worthy champions after a tough challenge. The team for DCW was Jen Lyons, Naoise Gallagher, Ameé Mooney and Katie Roche
Well done to the County Wicklow Juvenile Badminton Committee for organising the day and thanks to Mr. P Donoghue, Principal of Coláiste Chill Mhantáin for facilitating the blitz.
