Clean Sweep at SCC Basketball Finals 2019 (15)
What a fantastic day for the basketball programme as our fabulous teams completed the clean sweep, winning all six CDETB finals. The day started with our minor boys in action and they pulled off a great 18-13 victory in a tight final against Kylemore College. Melpatrick Rabadan was awarded MVP and baskets from Huming Wang, Luke Kearns and Gracjan Bobko were pivotal in leading the lads to victory. Our minor girls took victory in a dramatic game against Clonturk with the sides so evenly matched after double overtime that the game had to be settled with a free throw competition. Ava Henry and Suranne Phelan held their nerve to sink two baskets to win the game. Ava was also awarded the MVP for her wonderful performance. Our Junior girls took victory on a score line of 22-15 against a strong Pres Terenure side with Alicia Jadia picking up the MVP award. Baskets from Suvd Ulambayor, Joanne Bambe and Tatiana Orlov set the girls up strongly for the narrow victory.
Mark Szeder inspired our Junior lads to a comprehensive victory over Kylemore College with Alex Kiss, Andrei Sebeni and Bowen He all showing well.
Our inter girls led by MVP Maja Meidjeko picked up a big win over Pres Terenure. Strong performances from Samantha Kerrigan, Amran Maxamad and Rose Mesquita ensured the girls controlled proceedings from the off. The inter boys rounded off the day with a tight victory over Marino College on a score of 27-20. Thomas murphy, Honiss Shamloll and Filipe Esteves were strong throughout. Well done guys on a great achievement for the college.
