Basketballers are Silver Medallists

 

As a school community we united in congratulating our fantastic under-16 basketball players and coaches on their terrific achievement in reaching the All-Ireland final against Castletroy on the 26th February. It is a huge achievement to reach such levels and an indication of the efforts of all involved. It's worth remembering that they ran close a very strong team which had pretty much obliterated every other team they had played. So well done on that terrific performance. 

 

On the day, team members were: Dakota Callally, Sam Cummins, David Fanning, Aidan Geraghty, Callum Keogh, Jerard Laureta, Thomas McGorry, Darragh McGowran, Jack Moore, Sean O'Reilly, Paul Ryan and Gabriel Tang who all played an amazing game.

 

Our Principal, who attended the match, said that the team gave everything they had to the game and it was a great occasion even without the win. Everything that happened as they left school that morning was a credit to all our school community. He thanked Ms. Melbourne, Ms. O Brien and Ms. Peoples for all their efforts in helping the team achieve so much.

 

 

The supporters were a credit to the school on the day, respectful at the right times and loud at the right times. At the end of the game while the winners were having their photograph taken our players came to the side to thank their supporters. It was a moving image that summarised what the school is all about.  That dignity, respect and support for each other is part of what we are as a school, contributed to by us all. Well done to all involved.
