Juvenile Hurlers make History
Mr. Michéal Lawler has hailed the u14.5 hurling squad's qualification for the Dr.Barry Cup and the Juvenile A1 Leinster League as a "massive achievement for the school". These competitions are the highest tier of hurling in the province and it is the school's first time to compete in both. Hurling is a huge part of life in CBS for many students and the school beams with pride as a result of the lad's achievement. In an interview with the school website admin, Mr. Lawler, the man coaching the squad, had this to say;
" It is an historical day for the school. Qualification for this competition is testament to the lads willingness to work hard on a hurling pitch. You can't buy that, hard work on a pitch breeds a hard working ethic which can be transferred into the classroom. If you apply yourself to your classwork and homework then it becomes a habit and you do the same on the field. This is what our lads are doing and if it continues, they will continue to improve."
Mr. Lawler continued to tell of the squads efforts to challenge themselves and go out of their comfort zone. He acknowledged that tough games lie ahead but that regardless of what awaits, he is confident of the panel applying themselves fully.
"These are good lads, come what may, our best effort is what we will give and if we give that, then we learn and become better and who knows where that will take us."
The first of the Juvenile games takes place in St. Oliver Plunkett's GAA grounds at 12pm on Tuesday next Februay 12th.
Well done to all the lads and their mentors! #PositivityPridePerformance
