Boys and Girls Basketball Teams Reach Finals

Fri 11th Dec 2015

It’s hard to imagine it, but the basketball girls have followed up their great success last year with another league victory. The U16 girls have just won their league final convincingly and are now champions of Ireland East. This was a team effort, with every player contributing to the cause. Cheered on by a double decker of supporters, this was always going to be our day. We played against a skilful Colaiste Pobail Setanta with one really tall player. It took some superb pressure from Maeve, Eve, Ella B and Kacie to keep her quiet. Ella M, Sky, and Georgia kept the pressure high up the court meaning we turned over a lot of their ball. Chloe M. and Chloe P were able to close out the game for us. Irene and Belen gave us confidence with their offensive options and chipped in with plenty of scores. Our MVP for the day was definitely Sofia. It’s hard to imagine how she could improve from the super season she’s having , but the final definitely gave her the desire to push herself. Finishing the game as top scorer, she produced some amazing dribbles and scores and tormented the opposition all game long. The girls now move on to the National Qualifying tournament in January.
