Music and Drama. Congratulations and well done to the twenty eight 5th and 4th years who travelled to the Everyman Theatre, Cork City, for the All Ireland 15 Minute Second Level Light Entertainment Festival. 10 schools out of 28 made it to the Finals. Wilson's earned Best Individual Voice (Favour) and 3rd Place Overall. They came back with a plaque and €200.
Wednesday 20th March
Hockey. The Senior A Girls team played Dundalk Grammar School in the final of the Meath & District League today. The game was in North Kildare and the squad would like to thank all of the supporters for the boost they gave the team and their influence on the game. Unfortunately Wilson's didn't win the match but they played great hockey. They were complimented by both referees on their positive attitude, hard work and overall hockey ability. Many congratulations to the squad and their coach Ms Cosgrave.
Rugby. Our Junior Boys Team lost out by the narrowest of margins 34-33 to Belvedere College. This was to be the last competitive game for this young junior side who have punched well above their weight all season. They went into half time 12-7 down having played with the wind on their back in the first half. Lively full back Marco getting our try.
‘Belvo’ started the second half the fastest and scored three unanswered tries to take the game away from Wilson’s. Wilson's responded with a try through Matthew B but Belvedere also scored again making it 34-17. A frantic finish saw Wilson's add three further try’s through Matthew (his second), Eddie and Alvaro with the final play of the game.
This was a fine display from the Juniors with the pack playing an important part from the offset. Matthew, Ross and Eddie top performed in the pack, while Tom, Mateo and Alvaro were the pick of the backs.
Our First Year Boys Team lost out to St Paul's Raheny 19 – 26 in a very competitive game. The teams were tied 7-7 at half time. Our try came from Joel who was playing number 8.
In the second half the teams were tied 19 all going into the final five minutes with tries coming from Kevin and Samuel (his first for the school). It must be mentioned that a superb length of the field try saving tackle by Jude was one of the stand out moments of the second half. St Paul's did however get the final say edging in under the posts after sustained pressure.
Fintan, Scott and Charlie performed very well in the forwards while Michael, William and James did very well in the backs. Kevin was named Man of the Match after an all action display at open side flanker. Finally we have to wish first year players Kevin and James all the best as they face each other in the Leinster under 13 final in Donnybrook this weekend. Kevin plays with Mullingar while James applies his trade with Kells.
