Congratulations to CIT's  Ladies Volleyball team on recently winning the Intervarsities Plate. The three day competition hosted by UCD saw CIT play UCD, UCC & ITT on Thursday 28th November, finishing third in the group, as well as qualifying for the Plate competition. The following day, CIT played GMIT & GCD and qualified for the Plate playoffs. On Saturday CIT played ITC in the play-offs and GMIT in the semi-final. In an exciting and nail biting semi-final CIT won the first set (26-24), lost the second set (22-25), and battled to win the third and final set, therefore qualifying for the Final.
