Basketball – All Ireland Play Offs
It was a fantastic weekend (22 – 24 January 2016) for Basketball at Blackrock.
Calum Henry (6th Year) and his Squad qualified for the ALL IRELAND SEMI-FINAL winning 3 matches in 48 hours.
The trilogy began in our Sports Hall on Friday with victory over St Fachtnas, Cork (50 – 37).
Next up, on Sunday morning, we played Coláiste Oiriall, (Monaghan) in Avondale Community College, Rathdrum. A 45 – 27 win pitched us against Avondale Community College in the afternoon and the 57 – 34 winning margin was the product of outstanding teamwork and organisation both in attack and defence.
The ALL-IRELAND SEMI-FINAL will take place in the National Basketball Arena, Tallaght at 11.00 am on Tuesday 2nd February.
I thank Mr O’Neill and Shane Kelly (Class of 2013) for their preparation of the Squad and wish them well.
