We had a very historic day last Wednesday 14th with our first ever basketball match with the first year girls. We have entered the regional development league in order to develop the game within the school. The girls have been training hard since September and made great progress.
We were drawn against Scoil Ui Mhuirí, Dunleer in our first game had a strong start to the league winning the game 34:18 . Our top scorer on the day was Princess Okonkwo who scored 12 points followed by Pelumi Adesanya scoring 10. Scores also from Caoimhe Campas, Grace Mulligan, Sorcha Ó' Reilly and the final score from Somie Mefor. We had strong offensive and defensive play and were delighted with our win.
Our second game was Tuesday 20th January against Coláiste na hInse , Laytown. Both teams were equally matched and the game was very close indeed. Our first score came from Princess Okonkwo who scored 6 points, followed by scores from Grace Muilligan and Mia Harrison, the final quarter was a nail biting finish with only one basket between the two teams. We managed to retain our tight defense and narrowly took the game, final score was 9/7.
Well done to all the girls and training continues every Wednesday after school .
