Girls Test Rugby
CCS 28 v 12 St. Columba's Stranorlar
The senior girls rugby team wrapped up the season in style with a comprehensive test victory against St. Columba's Stranorlar. Final score - 28-12. They swept past a depleted Stranorlar side and thus preserved their unbeaten season. When asked to describe the game, Jackie, Kerri and Ciara agreed that only one word was needed...Unbeatable!
In recognition of Literacy Week in CCS, a host of initiatives have taken place during the week (7th-11th May) to assist the ongoing promotion of reading in the school. D.E.A.R. will take place throughout the school from 3.05pm on Friday, 10th May. If it's reading material you're after, you could do worse than browsing the World Book Day inspired list of "50 Books That Will Change Your Life". Happy reading!
Not since the glory days of the 90s has a girls team from CCS found themselves in a National Final. The First Years have finally broken the hoodoo this year and are now poised to appear in the showpiece against opposition from either Tipperary or Wexford. Yet another tense affair saw CCS beat Dominican College by the minimum scoreline, Aoife McCarron putting the ball in the back of the net, and putting CCS in the final. The details of that final are still TBA, but prep is already under way. Details as they become available...
First Year Girls Soccer - Ulster Final
CCS 1-0 Scoil Mhuire Buncrana
The First Year Girls Ulster Soccer Final took place Friday 3rd May at the immaculate Shamrock Park, Clonmany. On a pitch fit for the Premiership, CCS started the brighter, playing direct football that kept Scoil Mhuire facing their own goal for much of the half. The control was good and the passing was neat. However, it was probably the scrappiest moment of the game that led to the winning goal five minutes before the half, Clara Gill popping up with a definitive header after a brief game of head tennis in the box. The Buncrana girls got into things in the second half despite facing the breeze and CCS had to come up with the goods at the back on several occasions. They did that, and Scoil Mhuire were resigned to hopeful balls that the back four could sweep-up all day. As the match neared its conclusion, there wasn't an awful lot between the teams and the final whistle probably came at the right time for CCS. Mr. Conor Doherty and Ms. Marie Houten can take the credit for the tactics, but the girls on the pitch showed once again that they will not be beat on their day! Roll on Tuesday and another National Semi-final...And the REAL match report plus photos are on the way...
The ‘Wild Atlantic Way’ has inspired many creative gems, but this one takes the biscuit! Home Ec. pupil, Hannah Lynch recently baked a declicious lighthouse at the Donegal Schools Bake-Off in Loreto Milford. She did a fantastic job representing the school and you can assume that the cake is no longer available for display! Well done Hannah.
