05/05/2016 LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS WIN MEDALS AT NEBSSA FINALS

Two students from Loreto College Coleraine have won medals at the NEBSSA Athletics Finals, held at the Antrim Forum on 5th May.

Tolulupe Jide-Ojo (Year 9) and Alana Burns (Year 8) won medals in all the events they qualified for at the NEBSSA Athletics Finals, where Loreto College was also represented by Cheyenne Corbett (Year 9).

Alana Burns won the U13 Girls High Jump with a Personal Best jump of 1.32 as well as being placed second in the 800m. Tolu, meanwhile, won the U14 Girls’ Long Jump, was placed second in the 800m and third in the 200m – an even more remarkable achievement given that it was her first time competing at this distance.  Both girls will go on to represent Loreto College in the District C Championships on 11th May.
 
Both Alana and Tolu were congratulated on these superb achievements by Mrs Maureen McCullough, Head of PE at Loreto College.
