Sean and Cailin strike Athletic Gold

Congratulations to Sean Murphy (Year 10) and Cailin O’Kane (Year 11) who both collected gold medals at the NEBSSA Athletics finals at the Antrim Forum this week.

Sean ran a brilliant 1500m in 4 minutes 44 seconds to come home ahead of the pack.  This followed a superb run earlier in the day when he was just edged out of the gold medal position in the 800m.

Our second gold came from Cailin O’Kane.  The Glenravel student threw the Discus 26.55m to finish well ahead of his opponents.

In total St Killian’s College collected 7 medals and the 6 happy competitors are pictured below – left to right : Lauren McRandal (Year 9 Discus Bronze), Ellen Hynds (Year 9 800m Bronze), Corey Beggs (Year 11 100m bronze), Cailin O’Kane (Year 11 Discus Gold with a throw of 26.55m), Sean Murphy (Year 10 – 1500m Gold 4’44” and 800m Silver 2’18”) and Jade Bradley (Year 11 Shot, Bronze)
