DESMOND COLLEGE GIRLS BASKETBALL

June 12, 2017


Desmond College: Basketball Ireland

Desmond College had first, second year and cadette girls’ (u16s) basketball teams competing in the Limerick schools basketball league which is affiliated with the National Governing Body of Basketball Ireland.

Desmond Colleges Cadette (16s) girls narrowly missed out on a place in the Limerick Regional finals in University of Limerick this year. Losing their semi-final game by a close margin to Hospital.

Although bitterly disappointed with their loss both teams showed great sportsmanship and team spirit. We have no doubt that our Cadette girls will be back with fighting spirit next year as some will go on to form a Senior Girls basketball team for Desmond College.

Some great upcoming talent in all of our teams this year. Both our first and second year teams showed great determination and spirit in their games playing teams from Colaiste Mhuire Askeaton, Castletroy College, Salesians Pallaskenry, Hospital, Crescent Comp, Laurel Hill and Thomand College.

Ms Creed and Ms Ryan would like to thank all the girls involved for representing Desmond College and Choláiste Uí Chonba with such enthusiasm, commitment and respect for all opposition. Looking forward to next season already.
