22/05/2017 MEDALS FOR LORETO ATHLETES AT ULSTER ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Athletes from Loreto College Coleraine had an extremely successful day at the Ulster Schools Track and Field Championships on Saturday 20th May.

Niamh Carr (Year 12) won Gold in the Intermediate Girls 1500 metres event. Niamh is primarily a long distance runner, and had already taken Bronze in the 3000 metres event on the previous day.  Despite competing in the middle of her very taxing GCSE examinations, Niamh ran a well-judged race in the 1500 metres, passing the leading girl (who had beaten her in the District Finals) and taking the lead in the finishing straight.  Niamh will now have to decide which race to run in the Irish Championships on 3rd June.

Christopher Doherty (Year 14) won Silver in the Senior Boys 200 metres event and there was another Silver medal for Loreto College, won by Niamh McGarry (Year 8) in the 800 metres event.  Both Christopher and Niamh have qualified for the Irish Championships in June.

Loreto College was also represented at the Ulster Finals by Tolu Jide-Ojo (Year 10) and Cara McLaughlin (Year 9).  Tolu took fourth place in the 200 metres and Cara was placed fifth in the 800 metres.

Niamh, Christopher and Niamh were congratulated on their medal-winning performances by Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, on behalf of all the staff and students of the College.  Mr James also paid tribute to coaches Allister Braton and Philip Tweedie as well as to the Loreto PE Department.
