The intermediate squad of William Hurst, Joel Carson, Josh Patterson, Cameron Johnston and Angus Adair made their way to the final of the Intermediate Boys Plate competition defeating Grosvenor 5-0 and Wallace 5-1.  They played BRA in the final edging through with a 4-2 victory.

The Year 8 squad of Will Kernohan, Dan Kernohan, Matthew Cheung, Dan Smith and Adma Draper began their competition defeating Ballymena, Carrick and Ballyclare in the group stages of the competition.  They went on to meet Bangor Grammar in the semi-finals were the match was very tight but they managed to pull through to make it into the final.  This tight match with Bangor certainly aided their preparations for the final against Killicomaine which was even closer but they fought hard till the end and emerged victorious winning 4-2.
