Volleyball team do well

On Friday, November 8, our cadette boys travelled to Colaiste Cathail Naofa in Dungarvan for their seeding round to face Davis College (Mallow), Colaiste Mhuire (Thurles) and two Dungarvan teams.

Our boys took two straight sets in the first round against Colaiste Cathail Naofa (A), winning 25-15 and 25-13. In the second match, against the weaker Dungarvan team, we took the first set comfortably. The second of the two sets, however, saw Dungarvan (B) rally to take the set 28-26 after many set points on both sides.

Returning to their first choice players with one or two exceptions, Fethard resumed well to see off Colaiste Mhuire (Thurles) in the next match but were eventually outplayed by a very strong Davis College team in the last of their matches.

Panel on the day was: Thomas Channon (captain), Shane Buckley, Liam Quigley, Thomas O’Reilly, Danny O’Regan, Nathan Costin, Nathan Thompson, Dominik O’Dwyer, Keith Cronin, Jamie Cahill, Dean Dorney, Dylan Fenlon and Eric Fogarty.
