Year 8 pupil wins All Ireland Schools Championship
Last weekend, Caitlin Henry (8 Lyndon) travelled to Phibblestown, Dublin to compete in the All-Ireland Schools Judo Championships as a representative of St Louis supported by coach Rebecca Cuckoo, who is also a previous champion of this competition. Caitlin was fantastic and won the gold medal very convincingly by winning all of her fights by 10 points maximum score.
This year, Caitlin is unbeaten in all events and, since last September, she has only lost one fight at the Northwest Open in Derry where she picked up a silver medal.
In addition to being the All-Ireland Schools Champion, Caitlin is the current All-Ireland, Irish Open, NI and NI Open Champion. I’m sure you’ll agree that these achievements are outstanding. We are so proud of her. She is looking forward to the NI Schools Judo Championships in June.
