Basketball News - SCC Finals (15)

SCC Basketball Finals

Well done to our 6 teams who competed in the CDETB basketball finals in the National Arena yesterday. The Larkin representatives scooped 4 of the 6 trophies on offer. Our senior boys completed a 4 in a row after victory over a competitive Marino College. Our senior girls put on a spirited performance in defeat to a strong Pres Terenure  team.  Our Junior boys and girls both recorded comprehensive victories over Kylemore College while our first year boys picked up their first piece of silver ware with a victory over St Kevins College. The hard luck story of the day comes from our first year girls who battled back from a 6 point deficit to Marino College only to be denied by a last minute winning basket. Special mention to our TY helpers Leon, Kirsten and Shanice who helped run the competition. Also thanks to Jaihuang, Thomas, Salim, Alicia and Suvd for their help with coaching. Not to forget the great work from Ms. Dunphy as she started her Bball coaching career in Larkin. Well done to all on a great day and a great season.
