Basketball

We have just finished another excellent Basketball Season with lots of success through all the age groups. Eight out of the twelve teams made the Loreto Finals, which must be a League record. The remaining four teams all reached the Semi-Final Stage.

The Junior A Team had a great season. They reached the Dublin Final and narrowly lost out to a very strong Teresian’s team. They made up for it however by beating Foxrock in the Loreto Final. They then had a great trip to the University of Limerick where they competed in the All- Ireland’s. There they won their two group games and progressed to the Quarter Final where they lost to a very strong Killarney Team.

Congratulations to the Minor a Team who beat Dalkey in the Loreto Final. This was a great result and all the Junior Teams showed great promise for the future.

A special Congratulations must go to Ciara Milroy who made the Irish U16 Team and Jennifer Kirwan and Lauren Flynn who made the Leinster U14 Team.

I would like to thank our 6th year Basketball Captains; Laura O’Philbin and Aoife Gannon. We will miss you and best of luck in the future.

Keep up the practice during the summer girls! Don’t forget there are two Basketball Camps on in July; July 5th – 9th and July 19th – 23rd .

Winning Basketball Team

Congratulations to the Cadette A who made the Loreto League Final against Dalkey. The game went to extra time and Dalkey scored two 3 pointers to win the game. Well done girls on playing so well.

All players are showing great improvement and great potential for the future.

Keep up the hard work and training girls!

Please note that all teams are subject to change.
