Annual Sports Awards 2016 photo album
On Wednesday afternoon, 25th May, one of the country's most highly-rated sportsmen visited CCS for the Annual Sports Awards. The "Man From the Glen" addressed all the pupils involved in school sports. During his speech, Michael reiterated the key ingridient for his development as an individual and a sportsperson...Focus. He advised young people to surround themselves with positivity and to concentrate fully on the matter at hand, at that moment in time, whether it's sport or study. There is no better role model for our pupils than Michael Murphy and we would like to thank him for his visit and his inspirational words.

The CCS team emerged the victors, for the second year running, in a very close contest, played out at Dunfanaghy Golf Club on Friday, 6th May. In glorious sunshine, all the finalists were still in the hunt for the title as the last few cards were handed in.
Carndonagh's Conor McColgan proved the difference, with a magnificent individual score of 41 points, enough to clinch the title for CCS and secure for himself the individual winner's prize. The CCS team was an example of consistency, with all the boys scoring in the 30s.
Team Captain, Scott McElhinney, showed he will have little difficulty playing off his new 7 handicap. Team stalwarts, Ben Collins, Stephen McGonigle and DJ Mc Geoghan will surely be destined for lower single figure handicaps by the end of the summer. Ryan McLaughlin and Oisin McGonigle will be feared by every team next year, as we watch their handicaps tumble. Recognition also goes to Conor Quigley who was unavailable to play in the final.
Congratulations to all the boys!
