CCS kept a runaway Senior Rugby season on track with a superb win over Wallace High School, Lisburn - 32-10. The conditions were borderline, but when you're on winning form, inclement weather only seems to hinder the opposition. The gents from Carn now enter the quarter-final stage of the Ulster Grammar Schools 3rd XV Cup. CCS were invited to the competition as winners of the Ulster High Schools Cup. It's only big fish from now on. Next up is Methody College Belfast. If things keep going the way they're going, an invitation shouldn't be necessary next year. (Apologies to the GAA, who'll probably have to play their next match in a quagmire...)

CCS girls recently took part in a Rugby Blitz at Finn Valley. Ulster coaches were in attendance and we can assume that they were impressed with the lineup. Judging by the photos, there were no prisoners taken! With the women's game going from strength to strength in Ireland, it wouldn't be a surprise to see a few of our girls involved in senior rugby soon enough.

Senior Rugby - CCS 34:17 St. Eunan's

On Thursday, 24th January, the Senior Boys Rugby team reminded us that they're the best team in Donegal. They comprehensively outscored St. Eunan's Letterkenny in a match that could and probably should have seen them break 50 points. In the end it was a pretty routine victory. Things will only get tougher as the season progresses, but a fully fit CCS team can potentially be a match for anyone in Ulster.

The Annual Sports Awards took place on Friday, 17th May. The guest speaker on the day was Michael Murphy. While it was great to have a Donegal-based sporting icon in attendance, the real star of the show was our own Mr. John Farren, who received what was tantamount to a lifetime achievement award. Mr. Farren was always quick to credit pupils and staff for their efforts over the years, and time had finally arrived to repay the compliment. Mr. Farren appeared to fight back a tear as Mr. O'Donnell delivered an emotional speech recounting his accomplishments in CCS and the wider community. We would like to bid Mr. Farren a fond farewell as he moves beyond CCS, leaving behind the legacy of a long-awaited Ulster Senior Championship title. Thank you JF!

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!
