TCS Olympic Handball

U14 Dublin Blitz 2010

u14 blitz winnersLast year was a strong year for Olympic Handball in TCS as our boys dominated many of the Blitz competitions and won the South Dublin John Furlong Cup. They have continued their success into this season as they dominated the first blitz of the year and brought home the 1st place trophy.

The competition standard was high and as so many schools had entered the schools had to be divided into two groups. Tallaght faced Colaiste de hIde, St Tiernans, Killinarden CS, in the group competitions. They played St. Aidan’s in the semi final and Drimnagh in the final.

TCS was represented by:
Aaron Conroy, Conor Murray, Jamie Cohan, Liam Nolan, Adam Buckley, Philip O Donovan, Brian Smith, Anthony Shettock  and new 1st year students Aaron Ferguson, Anthony Hopper and James Clarke. Shane McCabe maintained his position as Team-Captain.
