Commiserations to our U-12s who suffered their first defeat in the Armagh League on Saturday last when they met Culloville. This group have a well-deserved break this Saturday.However they are the only group who will be resting since the seniors continue their quest for an Armagh title when they face Derrynoose, in Derrynoose, on Wednesday evening. Departure is from the Center at 6.15 and those who are travelling direct should indicate this to management.
Then on Thursday evening our U-16 panel play Culloville, in lieu of training. Departure is from the Centre at 6.30 sharp. Hopefully sufficient transport will be available to relieve those who have been ‘on the road’ quite a bit lately with our U-12’s. Parents are asked to confirm the availability of their daughters asap.
Saturday sees our U-14’s in action against Killeavy. Departure from the Centre is at 10.45 and again hopefully sufficient transport offers will ensure that no parent has to drive twice in the coming week – unless of course they wish to!!!! Parents are asked to advise of the availability of their daughters for this match. This game should provide a valuable work-out for our U-14’s who play Camlough on Tuesday evening in another away match. It is hoped that a bus will be provided for this match. Details will be available at the weekend.
Training continues on Thursday evening for the U-12/U-14 group at 5.30 with Marie and Aisling. Any Transition Year (or older) students who wish to assist with either this or the U-14/U-16 group should indicate this, as additional pairs of hands are always welcome. U-14/U-16 training will probably be re-scheduled on Thurs June 18 due to Scoil Mhuire Sixth Class graduation Mass. Alternative arrangements will be made with the panel.
And now over to the ‘Department of Apologies’!!! Firstly to Emily who recently was awarded ‘Athlete of the Year’ at Our Lady’s Secondary School end-of-year awards ceremony! What an achievement Emily, though not surprising when one considers that an average day for her could comprise swimming at 6am, in-school sporting activities and camogie or triathlon training in the evening! Last Friday, it was a case of coming from swimming in Lough Muckno (b-r-r-r-r) straight to senior training where she virtually ‘lapped’ players in the sprints. Sunday saw herself and Éimear participate in a triathlon! Phew! The rest of us only think we are active!!
Also apologies to Abbie whom I omitted from the list of those doing exams! Seems no length since Abbie was in Sixth Class – suddenly she is sitting her Junior Cert! Best wishes Abbie!
Finally, what comes around goes around Chloe!! So birthday greetings to you in the coming week!!! Sweet 16!! All say ‘Ah-h-h‘!!
