TY NEWS

As we fin­ish off the half term the TY’s have been as busy as ever. The car restora­tion crew fi­nally wres­tled the en­gine and gear box out of our Spit­fire. It is now ready to go to the paint shop to be stripped.

The set group have al­most fin­ished paint­ing the flats for the play. Its an in­cred­i­ble ef­fort and the girls to­gether with Ms Cody have done an amaz­ing job.

The pool life guard train­ing group were suc­cess­ful in at­tain­ing their lat­est wa­ter safety certs and are no well on there way to na­tional ac­cred­i­ta­tion.

YSI DE­BATE

The Tran­si­tion year YSI class are tak­ing part in a pub­lic de­bate on Tues­day, March 1, be­tween CCM and DCW at 7.30 p.m. in Do­mini­can Col­lege Wick­low. The mo­tion is ‘This house be­lieves that the EU should be do­ing more to help those af­fected by the war in Syria.

GIRLS HOCKEY

Our first year B team played their first league match against St Mary’s HFC and although we played ex­tremely well the op­po­si­tion was the stronger side on the day. Thank you to the Cap­tain Maria Lorita and also to Karen Nevin for um­pir­ing.

CROSS COUN­TRY

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Derek Cram­mond, Hana Blake, Dara Owens and Ailbhe Flynn, who com­peted in the Le­in­ster Schools Cham­pi­onship on Tues­day last. All ath­letes ran bril­liantly on the day and our three se­nior girls came sec­ond in their re­lay race. The girls will com­pete in the all-Ire­land Cham­pi­onships later this year.

UN­DER-14 RUGBY

A first/sec­ond year se­lec­tion over­came San­ford park 26-10 on a very sticky pitch. Tries from Nicky Flood, Howard Noo­nan and Adam Neil se­cured the vic­tory. The back row of Neil, Moelders and the in­spired Max Richards were a con­stant thorn in the op­po­si­tion’s side.

At half back Peter Sch­mit and Nicky Flood con­trolled af­fairs re­ally well. The cen­tres of Chris Mitchell and Ben Hud­son formed an im­pen­e­tra­ble wall in de­fence and caused havoc when they ran from deep. At full back Tom Flood was al­ways keen to look for a gap ably sup­ported by Barra Cullen.

The tight five laid the foun­da­tions for this vic­tory, with Howard Noo­nan con­stantly run­ning off Sch­mit mak­ing yards ev­ery time. In the sec­ond, he was helped by Billy Ferns and the dogged de­ter­mi­na­tion of Jake Law and Toby Mody.

Off the bench Jonathan Collins and Ed­ward Stephen­son made a valu­able con­tri­bu­tions with Alex Wilding em­bark­ing on a few lung bust­ing runs. This team will form the back bone of next year’s JCT so the signs are en­cour­ag­ing.
