Yesterday was an incredibly proud day for our Girls Basketball teams and school as both 1st & 2nd Year Girls were crowned Regional Champions! 2nd Years came out on top against St. Josephs Charlestown in their semi-final with some fabulous displays of fast breaks and tight defence. After the triumph of our tremendous 1st Years winning the Final (an incredible achievement their first time in a league! ) 2nd Yr Girls had the fire and determination to take Headford on in a nail-biting game. Every player worked so hard to fight for the ball and win layups and the second half the girls took off to lead until the final whistle. Our dual captains of Meadhbh Hanley and Emma Heneghan lifted the cup in elation as all girls jumped for joy! Well done and congratulations to all the girls and coaches Ms. Canny and Ms.Grehan. The girls showed if you believe and work hard you can achieve anything! It was a special day we will remember.
Well done to our talented 2nd Year lads who started off a busy sporting week with a win & they have secured the West Region Crown in Basketball. We were slow to start in the first quarter against a well prepared Headford side. But we took off in the second quarter with great team play and scores from Robert Heneghan and Dylan Connolly. A big lead was generated and they never looked back. Colm Costello, our captain fantastic accepted the cup and they now look forward to the All Ireland playoffs where they will try to secure a place in the Arena like last year. Best of luck to all the other sports teams who are representing the school this week
Well done 1st-year Girls Basketball team who beat Spiddal last Monday in the league decider. An unsettled start thankfully ended in a 5 pt lead for our Dunmore girls as they stormed into the last quatre with fight and determination. These girls are no rookies when it comes to spirit of play and a tight defense that created fast-break chances secured our way forward in the league. We play St. Nathys in the Regional Semifinals on March 11th so the very best of luck, it would be fantastic for our 1st years to get to the final 🤞!
Well done to our brilliant 2nd Year Girls basketball team who travelled to Colaiste na Coiribe today and took home gold after a nail-biting finish! Trailing by 8 pts, a change in defence was necessary to create steal opportunity’s and get scores on the board. Isabelle Murray and Chloe Diskin put huge pressure on front freeing up the ball on the run for Meadhbh Hanley, Emma Heneghan and Grace Dooley. All girls played their part in finally levelling the game which led to a tense 3 min extra time. To our delight, a lovely basket by Grace sealed the fate of the Irish speakers as the buzzer went and Dunmore girls celebrated an amazing win by 1 basket! We meet Charlestown in the Regional Semi-Finals hosted by our school on March 11th with the dream of Finals within our grasp. Best of luck girls and Ms.Canny.
