The senior boys rugby team worked hard this year making it through to the quarter final of the Anne McInerney cup in Leinster. Although they were put out they had a great season and all was not lost.
St Joseph’s CBS Drogheda retained the North Leinster schools u-14 title over there town neighbours after an excellent match in Darver center of excellence. Both teams had met each other earlier in the competition with that match finishing a draw so a keenly contested game was expected again and both teams duly delivered.
We have training every Thursday with Mr. Callan, Mr. Corrigan and Mr. McQuillan. So far we have played one blitz in Darver. Two teams were picked and both teams won their games. We have done 5 weeks of training so far. We are enjoying it!By Alex Matthews, Paul Murphy, James McGlew (IF)
We play with the 1st year basketball team and we play in the A division. We have started a tournament with six other teams. This will start in January. We are training very hard now. Our coach, Coach Ciarán, is very good. We are having loads of fun and enjoying basketball so far! By Sean Kearney and Eoin Diskin (IF)
St. Joseph’s U16 hurling team won their match against Lusk Community College. This match was part of the Dublin Top Oil Junior League. At half time, Lusk C.C were leading by 1 point but St. Joseph’s had a very strong wind against them. In the second half we were able to turn the game around. Lusk had a player sent off. The final score was 3-8 to 1-6, to St. Joseph’s. Thanks to Ms. Bugler and Mr. O’Brien. Thanks also to Mr. Ryan and Mr. Stephenson for accompanying us to the match.By Shane Reilly (2F)
We played St. Mary’s in the Wolftone’s pitch a few weeks ago. When we got off the bust we went to the dressing rooms to get ready. Mr. McCole and Mr. Mathews announced the starting teams. After this we went and completed a very intense warm up. The first half was a great display of strength and composure from St. Joseph’s. Going into half time the score was 2-3 to 2-3. At half time our coaches had a chat with us. We think both teams had the chance to take the lead but in the end the final score was 4-6 to 4-6. Hopefully if we play St. Mary’s again we will beat them! By Tadhg Martin and Conor McGuirk
Last week the Junior rugby team played Ardee Community School in Ardee. It was a close game. St. Joseph’s couldn’t come out with a victory as a missed tackle led to a last minute try to Ardee. We gave it our best shot and we are ready for the next game! Thanks to Ms. O’Rourke! - Jack Carley (2R)
I play golf with St. Joseph’s every year. Ms. Moore and Mr. Farrell run golf in the school. We meet during the year to play against each other. I have a handicap of 6 and I’m a member of Baltray Golf Club. I won golfer of the year with my club two years in a row. - James Fanning (5.1)
