02/12/2009 SUCCESS FOR LORETO COLLEGE TRAMPOLINING TEAM

The Trampolining team from Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School, had a tremendous start to the competitive year recently.  On 28th November, 25 pupils travelled with their coach, Mrs Karen Graham, and PE teacher Ms Julie Wilson to Ards Leisure Centre for the Northern Ireland Schools’ Trampolining Championships.

At U13 level, Caite Skelly (Year 8) was placed first, and is Northern Ireland Elite Champion.  Eve O’Loan (Year 11) was placed second in the U15 Elite class, while Maeve Lofthouse (Year 11) and Aisling O’Kane (Year 11) were placed respectively fourth and sixth in the same competition.  The Loreto Senior Girls’ team was placed fifth overall.

Among the boys, the Under 13 Boys’ team (Barry Daly, Evan Wall, Simon Purvis and Callum McCarthy, all Year 9) was placed first, while in the individual competition Barry Daly became the U13 Northern Ireland boys Novice Champion.  Evan Wall was placed second in this individual competition, while Jordan McCullough (Year 8) was placed third.  Jordan’s achievement is all the more noteworthy as it was his first competition.

College Principal Mr Brian Lenehan paid tribute to the students and their coaches, Mrs Karen Graham, Mrs Maureen McCullough and Mr Paul Byrne.  Several students – Caite Skelly, Eve O’Loan, Barry Daly, Evan Wall, Jordan McCullough and the U13 Boys’ team - now proceed to the National UK Championships in January 2010 in Hull.
