DCS Double Regional Girls Basketball Champions!
Our U16 and U19 girls had 2 fantastic wins yesterday in the Regional Finals in Maree, Oranmore! Unbeaten throughout the whole campaign both teams showed tremendous character, determination and some super offence/defence plays in all matches.
Amazing fast breaks up the court against Mount St. Michaels Claremorris, St. Joseph’s Charlestown, Pres Tuam, and finally Glenamaddy secured the girls rightful place in the semi-finals.
Last Tuesday the U19s beat Presentation Headford 34 21 and U16s beat Colaiste na Coiribe 29 16 to gain their rightful place in the Regional Finals on Friday 17th December.
U16s put on an incredible performance which ensured the opposition couldn’t even score in the 1st half! That finished up 24 15 with Rebecca Noone as brilliant captain lifting the cup and big celebrations! Well done to the team and to Ms. Grehan for her huge dedication as u16 coach!
U19’s met Colaiste na Coiribe in the final and battled with everything they had to ensure Dunmore’s amazing leader Mairéad Glynn lifted the cup as her teammates celebrated with huge excitement and so well deserved for all! Congratulations to the team and to their coach Ms. Canny for this great achievement.
Both teams are now in the best 16 in the country who will meet in the All-Ireland Play-Offs in a bid to get to the All-Ireland finals. The very best of luck to the 2 teams and coaches Ms. Grehan and Ms. Canny, DCS are proud of you all!
