Well done to everyone who competed at the Wicklow Schools Invitational Athletics Cross Country run at Avondale Forest Park on Thursday. Cold weather and steep inclines did not deter our Athletes today as every one of the lads completed this tough cross country run.

2nd Year Gaelic Football success

CBS Arklow 4.9 Baltinglass 1.6

The CBS second year Gaelic football team won their second round in the south Leinster championship yesterday Tuesday with a hard fought win away to Baltinglass

Baltinglass were much the stronger in early exchanges with the CBS defence really struggling with the power and pace of the Baltinglass forwards. The positioning of man of the match Brendan Kenny to centre back proved to be the catalyst for success. The defence started to play as a unit with Sé Killoran prominent at full back Slowly our forwards began to find the spaces with full forward Adam Lifely proving a real handful scoring 1-2 with Ryan Redmond, Kian Scanlan and Jack Keogh Taping over points. At half time the CBS lead 1-6 to 4 points.

The lads hit their purple patch in the 3rd quarter as their running game improved. Lifely found himself on the end of good runs by Scanlan and Redmond scoring another 2 goals and Jack Keogh continued his accuracy ending the day with 5 points from play . Well taken goals from the prominent Scanlan and Redmond as well as Cormac O Donoghue scoring an impressive 1-1 put the CBS in a prominent position which they never led slip.

Senior Gaelic Football

Our seniors took to the field in the first round of the Leinster Championship against Colaiste Chraobh Abhann on Tuesday. It was a first outing for the senior team and our new kit. CBS were slow out of the blocks and were down by 9 points midway through the first half, but they rallied with goals from Stephen O'Toole and Conor Gahan to leave 2 points in it at half time.

Despite a spirited display from the CBS lads in the second half Colaiste Chraobh Abhann prevailed in a pulsating game with the final score 3- 5 to 3 - 9.
