End of Term Sports Update

The Senior girls’ basketball team recently won the East Leinster Regional Final and have qualified for the All-Ireland competition, to be played in the New Year. They defeated a strong Luttrellstown Community School side in that final, with brilliant performances from captain Abbie MurrayAyodeji Ediale, Molly Mann and Laia Perich-Godo. See a full match report here.

The Senior rugby team’s excellent run in the McMullen Cup sadly came to an end on Wednesday after a 12-15 loss to St. Mary’s Drogheda. It was a hugely competitive game with two great tries from Gavin O’Dowd and Aaron Murray, and SCC almost snatched it at the death. The Junior rugby team’s cup run ended early too with defeat against Salesian College Celbridge, despite a four-try scoring performance from David Cron. Our Form I boys played in a highly competitive game against Wilson’s Hospital recently.

In boys’ hockey, our Senior XI had some good wins over High School and Temple Carrig and a narrow loss to Kilkenny College, while the Junior XI had strong victories over Temple Carrig and Kilkenny College. The girls’ teams have also had a good run recently, with big wins over East Glendalough, Sutton Park and Our Lady’s Grove for the Senior XI team, who actually remain unbeaten in their League this season. With one game remaining, they have already qualified for the league quarter-final. The Minor A girls have also qualified for their league quarter-finals; both games will be played in the New Year.

In golf, we wish Form V pupil Danielle Daniy the best of luck as she competes the school at the ‘Golf Mad Junior Open’ in Turkey this week. Danielle is one of the members of our Golf Academy.
