On Nov 15th we went to Lees Road for the finals of the cross-country running. Before the races started we did some warm-ups on the astroturf. The first races were the under 8’s then u10’s and finally over 10’s. We had great success on the day, winning 7 individual medals. The u8 girl’s team came first, the u10 girl’s team came third and the over 10 boys’ team came first. In the overall school competition . Knockanean finished second! Thanks to all that helped out by providing a tent and hot chocolate. The chocolate really warmed us up on a cold day!

On Wed 9th of November, we went to Cusack Park to play the school’s football final. Our opponents were Kildysart N.S. It was a really tight and exciting 1st half. At half-time, the score was 3 points to 1 with Kidysart leading. We did lead at one stage in the 2nd half but unfortunately for us, Kildysart finished strongly and won the match. Despite losing we loved playing in Cusack Park and had an enjoyable day
We won against Ruan-Toonagh on the 16th of June in Cusack Park, having defeated O’Callaghan Mills-Kilkishen in the semi-finals. It was a challenging game but we defeated Ruan-Toonagh by nine points. The end score was 4-13 to 2-9. It was such a fun day and we are especially proud because it has been seven years since Knockanean boys were last hurling champions.
