Building on our successful sporting achievements from last year we have had a very good start this September. Our first year Camogie team entered the Cavan Schools Blitz day on Friday the 23rd of September. This was the team’s first outing and they did very well on the day losing one game and winning three. Our U16 Camogie team are also in winning form with their first victory on Wednesday the 28th of September against Baileborough at the 3G field Breifne Park. This was round one of the U16 Junior D Ulster Competition and the final score was 2-3 to 0-1. Player of the game was Emma Duffy. Round two was on Friday the 7th of October. This was an away game against Breifne College which ended in another victory for Loreto with the final score at 6-3 to 2-0. Player of the game was Amanda Collins. The team have yet to meet Ballyjamesduff but are already looking good to qualify for the Ulster semi-final. We’ll keep you posted!!
A first for Loreto is the entry of our U16 Soccer team to the Cavan/Monaghan School Girls Soccer tournament. This is the first time we have entered a soccer competition and we have gotten off to a good start beating Baileborough in the first round with a triumphant score of 8-2. Player of the game was Karen Delaney. The U16s are training hard and are looking forward to their next game against St. Louis of Monaghan.
Our school fixtures are just getting started and we have a very busy few months coming up. The Camogie Ulster Championship and Soccer league will continue, the cross country team will have their first meet at the Cavan Schools Cross Country in Killenkere on Wednesday the 26th of October, the swim team will travel to the NAC on the 11th of November for the annual Loreto Schools Swimming Gala and the U14 and U16 Gaelic Football championship will begin this month with the U16 team due to play Holy Trinity from Tyrone next week. Hopefully we will have lots of good news to report from these competitions.
