15/02/2017 SWIMMING SUCCESS FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

Niamh McGarry and Eilîs Mullan, Year 8 students from Loreto College Coleraine, had a great day at the Irish Minor Schools’ Swimming Championships in Dublin’s National Aquatic Centre.  This was the fourth year the girls had qualified to represent their school at this level. 

The girls swam personal bests at the Championships, representing Loreto College with great distinction.  Niamh McGarry was 9th in the Freestyle and first Ulster swimmer home in a time of 31.94, as well as taking 11th place in the Butterfly in 36.36.  Eilis Mullan, meanwhile, was 25th in the Backstroke in 40.37.  With over 70 swimmers in each event, this was a wonderful achievement for both girls.

Niamh and Eilis were congratulated on these wonderful performances by Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, on behalf of all the staff and students of the College.
