Cistercian College sports awards in rugby and athletics

Cistercian College Roscrea recently honoured their Rugby players after a long and memorable season.
The JCT gave the College great enjoyment as they contested the Junior Cup after stunning wins over Newbridge, Clongowes and Fintans.

The boys lost the final by one score to St Michael’s after one of the best finals in recent times.
The Senior seconds won the Leinster Division One Cup, their second in five years. A great reward for six years of hard work and training for many of the squad.

The Transition Year side were beaten by one point by eventual winners Kilkenny College in a thrilling semi final. The S4 rounded off the Senior year with some very entertaining games.
The SCT were defeated in the first round of the Senior Cup and the team knows that a renewed focus is required for the next season under head coach Sean O’Brien.

The J2, Second Years and First Years showed great commitment to their training and development programme. We look forward to seeing their progress next year.
