Call to Code Success

Congratulations to Zuzanna Szczepanek, who took part in Google’s “Call to Code” National Coder’s competition on Thursday at Google HQ.  Following a grueling four stage contest Zuzanna  was ranked 6th nationally in the junior category and was treated to an inspiring day out at Google Dublin.  Well done Zuzanna!

Fine form at Oldcastle Cross Country

Minor boys: Jake Cullen lead by a mile in a 1km race, Sean o Connor dug deep on last hill to regain his earlier second position, Aaron o Connor found fifth gear in the final sprint to increase his standings greatly and secure top 20 finish, and Tom Murphy ran steady race to help put this team into second place over all.

Jarlath Jordan was comfortable winner in intermediate boys while eoin Harkin made transition from sprinter to x-country runner by securing a very respectable 10th.

Minor girls had some great new first year talent coming through-definitely few to watch in future.

Inter girls Martha ní Riada managed top 10 placing, while lucy Kelly despite going out on her ankle was just narrowly pipped to a top 20 position.

U15 North East Basketball Team off to Inter Regionals

Over the past few months, a panel of 24 boys and 24 girls were put through their paces through trials for a place on the North East U15 Inter Regional basketball team. They trained relentlessly, the final 13 were selected, and the team was born. So began the road to the Inter Regional Tournament! These 13 boys and 13 girls are from Meath, Louth, Cavan and Monaghan. They are exceptional players that have trained hard, made sacrifices, are extremely dedicated, and earned their place on this team.

It is a privilege to play for their region and, for some of our players, this could just be the beginning of an incredible journey. Some may go on to have successful careers in basketball.

On the 16th of October, the teams travelled to Galway to represent their region. We wish them all the best in the tournament. Congratulations to our DCC students, Kevin Bawle, Henry Benson, Jack Dardis, Fiona Cahalin and Jane Larkin who were chosen to represent their region. We are so proud of your achievement.
