Tennis – Leinster Schools’ Junior Division 1 Title, May 2022
Leinster Schools’ Junior Division 1 Title v Gonzaga College
Tuesday, 24th May 2022
Congratulations to the Junior 1 Tennis team, led by Freddie Bracken (2nd Year), who won the Leinster Schools’ Junior Division 1 title last Tuesday, 24th May at Templeogue LTC against a strong Gonzaga side. The team, which also includes Jamie O’Nuallain, Charlie Martin, Christian O’Flynn, Max Sheridan (all 2nd Year), Joey Connolly and Richard Kinsella (both 3rd Year) won the tie 3-1, with one match unfinished.
The team finished the season unbeaten, and with the majority of the wider squad being current 2nd Year pupils and thus eligible for the competition next year, the future looks bright at this level for tennis in the College. Thank you to Evan O’Brien who did so much work behind the scenes with arranging fixtures, procuring t-shirts for the team and managing the transport requirements.
We thank Mr O’Shea for his promotion and organisation of Tennis in Blackrock.
