This Friday our Under 16A Basketball team will travel to Limerick for the Semi Finals of the Under 16 A National. Their opponents are the number 1 seeded team in the country St Joes Bish from Galway who narrowly beat our team in last year’s semi final of the National League by 1 point.
Still hurting over last year’s lost to St Joes the team have come in over the Christmas period for extra training in preparation for this match. The team are full of confidence that they can be victorious in the match this time. Led by their captain Cillian O Donoghue they have performed brilliantly in every game this season. Three of our players have achieved national recognition with the Irish Junior Basketball squads, Conner White, Robert Tornsey, and Divin Matabisi.
The Under 16’s have worked hard every week in training and fully deserve their chance at achieving success this year in Limerick and in reaching the All Ireland Finals later this month in the National Arena.
