Basketball Update

Both our first and second year girls' basketball teams narrowly missed out on a place in the Dublin League Schools Finals. The first year team faced Dominican College Griffith Avenue in their semi-final. An early lead from DCGA presented a challenge from the outset but a fantastic performance by the Maynooth team in the final quarter showed the future is bright for this up and coming team! Meanwhile, the second year team met Maryfield College in their semi-final. Tension was high as these two teams had also played each other in the first year final in the National Basketball Arena last year, where Maynooth lost by 1 point in the final seconds of the game. It was a very a close game with an amazing 3-point shot in the final second of the third quarter from Maynooth that kept the team in contention right until the end of the final quarter. Unfortunately it wasn't Maynooth's day, but we look forward to meeting Maryfield again next year at U/16 level, hopefully in the final!
