Kingscourt lacrosse team runners up in national final

Many congratulations to our lacrosse team who travelled to Sheffield yesterday to take part in the national championships. There were 20 teams in the competition. Our team played very well, excellently supported by their coach Ms Bose and parents who had made the long trip north. Having topped their group, beating last year’s winners on the way, our team faced Scottish champions, Strathblane in the final. After a well matched game, Kingscourt were just edged out of victory, 9 points, to 12. The whole school is very proud of their amazing achievement.

Headteacher Jamie Lewis said, “Congratulations to each team member who worked hard to achieve this excellent result. Congratulations also to their coach, Ms Julia Bose whose support and expertise has given the team the skills and confidence to achieve at this high level.”
