This year a lot of out teams reached the latter stages of their competitions, with Rock Climbing and Squash competing at intervarsity level for the first time. Also, this year has seen a noticeable increase in the fundraising efforts throughout the year by all students through extra-curricular activity. Numbers participating continue to increase especially in the recreational side and new clubs and societies are formed each year.  Regardless of competitive or recreational participation students gain so much from being involved. Being part of a college club or society really is quite a unique experience and you should continue to enjoy it as it will be over all too quickly.

On the night of the Ball, Steve Clifford from the I.T. Tralee Students Union opened the proceedings by welcoming everyone to the function and congratulating all students on the tremendous achievements this year.
Speaking on the night, Dr. Michael Hall, Registrar of the Institute commended all the students on their sporting endeavours and highlighted the importance of participation in sport at all levels.

Also speaking on the night was Amy Collins, Sports Officer in the Institute, she highlighted that the success in student sport is due to the dedication and commitment of the students and their mentors, the support of Institute Management and Staff, the generosity of many sponsors and the help and assistance of local clubs in helping to maintain what has become a very proud record of student achievement in sport for IT Tralee. Amy also spoke about the important role recent scholarship schemes have played in the development and promotion of sport in the Institute and acknowledged that the IT Tralee, Kennedy Coaches & Tralee Rugby Club Scholarships along with Munster & Kerry GAA Bursaries show the Institute’s commitment to attracting top athletes while also maintaining strong community links. She also thanked both Munster GAA and the Kerry County Board for their continued support throughout the year.

The Awards evening is a fitting formal tribute to the Institute’s student sporting ambassadors and on the night students received citations for their administration/coaching roles within the clubs and each club also nominated their club person of the year.

The night concluded with the announcement of the much anticipated Team of the Year and Overall Sports Person of the Year.  The Judo team received the ‘Team of the Year’ award in recognition a very successful year. They were undefeated in the Judo Intervarsities in their individual categories and in the team competition. Peter Nash received the award for Sports Person of the Year, Peter has been a key member of the football, hurling and soccer teams throughout the year, supporting and encouraging others around him, and has been an inspiration to his follow peers. 

The Sports & Societies Ball was a fitting way to end the sporting year in the Institute and an enjoyable night was had by all.
