23/10/2009 GOLF SUCCESS FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENT

A Year 12 student at Loreto College Coleraine has won an award of considerable merit in a prestigious golf tournament in the past week.

Daniel McAleese won through to the British qualifying stage for the European Open, following an initial round held at Royal Portrush, from which the top two Junior players in Northern Ireland qualified.† The British qualifying stage was held at four different venues in the United Kingdom, and Daniel played his competition at the Westerwood Golf Club, Glasgow.†

Daniel emerged victorious after a tense competition in Glasgow, with a score of +3, one point ahead of the runner-up.† He has won an expenses-paid trip to Spain in January, where he will take part in the European Open Under 16 Championsí Week, which is a five-day tournament played on four different courses.

Daniel was congratulated on this wonderful achievement by Mrs Maureen McCullough, Head of PE at Loreto College, on behalf of College Principal Mr Brian Lenehan and all the staff and students of the school.† He is clearly a talent to watch for in the years ahead!
