Is there no stopping the winning streak that Ollies is having in all areas of sport and now we say a big hip hip hooray for our Tennis Stars recently crowned after a resounding victory over arch rivals St. Fintan’s Sutton.
This girls team having been playing together for a number of years at different grades and they were anxious to bring the cup home as many of them are off to Secondary School in September. The team consists of Aoife Paul, Dearbhail Devally, Eimear Reilly, Fiona Ryan, Nikki Lynch and Sarah O Connor. These girls have been so dedicated training 4-5 times a week in tennis and have put in huge effort over the past two years and this great effort has paid off.
This is third year reaching the Leinster Division 1 Final having won in 2012 and Runners-up in 2013. They are delighted to bring the Leinster Cup back to Ollies after their brilliant win in the final in Lansdowne recently. It is great to be the best team in Leinster and we were all proud to represent our school especially since five of us are leaving for Secondary School. Our team consists of three sets of Doubles, Eimear & Sarah, Fiona & Aoife and Nikki & Dearbhail.
The girls tell us that they love tennis and, as a team, they play great together and they say they are a class one team! And girls, we heartily agree. Take a bow – you are stars in our eyes and we are proud of you all.
