1st Year Girls
Our first years girls Bball team picked up a superb 25-10 win today against Rockford Manor in the Leinster league. The girls led from start to finish in what was a much improved performance. It’s evident the girls are learning from past mistakes and they continue to improve from game to game. Captain Carmelina Orlov was a constant thorn in the Rockford side and she was ably assisted by the skilful Alisha Sammy and hard working Abbie Reid. Katrina Jadia and Abbie Keegan were also in fine form throughout. Isabelle Baker and Julia Kolasa worked tirelessly on defence to ensure the result was never in doubt.
2nd Year Girls
Our second year girls recorded their first win of the season with a tense and impressive 18-14 victory over Rockford. Ava Henry led the way with a captain’s performance as she drove the team forward at every opportunity. Agi Viragh, Elaine Torres and Denisa Argint also impressed. Special mention to Alina Serbanco who was excellent on her debut for the school. Suranne phelan was a constant menace under the boards and closed out the victory with two fine baskets.
Hard luck to our first and second year girls Bball teams who fell to tough defeats against a very strong St Andrews. As always the girls battled gamely and never gave in. Once again a lot of improvement was evident and we look forward to our final game of the season next Thursday away to Newpark Comp. heads up guys.
