05/03/2004 SPORTS HONOURS FOR LORETO STUDENTS

Honours have been coming the way of some of the Sports enthusiasts at Loreto College Coleraine recently.

The Year 12 soccer team completed a remarkable hat-trick of titles in February when they lifted the Coleraine and District League title for the third year in succession. Under the guidance of coach Mr Paul Byrne, the boys have worked together to produce an impressive team-spirit and standard of play over the past three seasons, and fully deserve the silverware they have won.

Meanwhile in Gaelic games, the Loreto Senior team football team completed a fine season with a valiant performance in the semi-final stage of the Ulster Colleges’ McLarnon Cup, while the Senior Camogie team finished runners-up in the Ulster “B” final.

In Cross-Country running, finally, the Loreto team maintained its reputation of strength, with established talent Elizabeth McWilliams (Year 13) crowned Ulster Champion and qualifying for the All-Ireland finals. Two rising stars emerged in Stephen Dooley and Ciara Cunning (both Year 8) – Stephen won the District C Cross Country competition and took 10th place in the Ulster Minor finals, while Ciara was placed 15th in the District competition and subsequently took 20th place in the Ulster final.

Loreto College Principal Mr Brian Lenehan congratulated all those involved in these tremendous achievements, and paid tribute to all students and staff who take part in the College’s extensive programme of extra-curricular sports.
