CALASANCTIUS SWIM TEAM BAG 3 GOLD AND 1 BRONZE MEDAL AT THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS CONNACHT FINALS HELD IN TUAM ON SUNDAY 21st OCT.

A very successful day out for the Calasanctius College Oranmore swim team was had in Tuam swimming pool on Sunday 21st Oct. Calasanctius had a team of 12 swimmers which was certainly one of the biggest teams at the Connacht Secondary schools swim finals. Over 40 secondary schools were represented from throughout the Connacht region with over 200 swimmers competing in three age groups (Junior, intermediate and Senior age levels)

The team consisted of Leah (Leaving Cert) Paula (Junior cert) Cecelia (2nd year) Caoilin (5th year) Sorcha (Junior Cert) Clodagh (1st year) Kristina (2nd year) Lucy (Junior Cert) Rory,(Junior cert) Rian (1st year) Robin (5th year) and Jake (junior cert) .

Robin won gold in both the 100m backstroke and the 400m freestyle while Sorcha Kearney took gold and Caoilin Kearney took bronze in the 100m freestyle event.
Calasanctius College had both a boys and girls freestyle and medley relay team. Both teams came agonizing close to the medal positions both finishing in 4th place missing out on the bronze position by milliseconds.
Robin and Sorcha will now go forward to represent Connacht as part of the Interprovincial team. That event will be held at the end of April 2019.
Many thanks to Helen Gunning who acted as coach to the team on the day and Ger Dowling who acted as team manager.
