On Friday, 50 of our pupils travelled to the ‘E’ District Athletics Championships held in Antrim Forum. 37 schools from across the district took part.

All pupils from CHS represented the school well with many pupils winning medals and securing a place in the Ulster Championships this Saturday.

4 pupils finished in Gold medal position. They are Lucy McClenaghan in the Long Jump, Nicholas Griggs in the 800m, Danielle Ferguson in the Triple Jump and Andrew Shaw in the 5000m.

Jay Morton and Ewan Mitchell won Silver in the 100m and Triple jump respectively. The following pupils won bronze in their events - Lucy McClenaghan in the 100m, Elisha Hunter in the Javelin, Theo Thompson in the High Jump, Jay Morton in the 200m and Hugo Cleary-McGuffin in the 1500M. Both the Year 9 girls and the Year 10 boys won bronze medals in the relay. All of the above qualify for the Ulster Championships this Saturday and we wish them every success. Well done to all our pupils who took part on Friday.
