Ursuline College: all the news
Well done, Aisling!
Aisling McDermott, sixth year, returned from the World Kickboxing Championships in Bratislava with a silver medal.
She is a member of the Sligo Mugendo Club and has already won two World silver medals, European gold, and one silver. She is coached by her father, Michael. Her Hungarian opponent in the final beat her by a mere two points.
Our athletes took part in their first Cross-country competition of the year in Calry. Students from the Grammar, St.Mary's, Ballisadare and Ballinode College all took part in the event.
The Ursuline teams competed well, taking gold medals for the second Year and Senior team, and silver medals for the 1st Years.
Eva Martin has been selected on the Connacht Under 16 team. Eva, who plays at left forward, also lines out for Yeats Hockey Club. She is the only Sligo player on the Connacht side, which is a wonderful achievement and we wish her the best of luck.
