Senior & Cadette Girls Basketball
Our senior and cadets girls played their final group games on Wednesday last in Ardscoil Trionoide, Athy and both came away with victories which have guaranteed their place in the regional semi finals.
Our cadets were in control from an early stage and good defence from Aoife Fanning Siney, Erin Meredith and Alanna Baker kept the Athy girls at bay. Sarah Hanlon, Rachel Ryan and Jade Lawlor were in good scoring form and kept the scoreboard ticking over for a comfortable 36-14 victory.
Our senior girls got off to a great start and took an early lead which they maintained until the final quarter when they came under serious pressure from Athy. Annie Curran was in super form both defensively and offensively and her workrate was to be admired. Lauren Kelly made a welcome return after her exploits in Turkey with the Irish soccer team and she showed her basketball skills are on par with her soccer skills. Huge credit to all the girls who hung on for a 3 point win 29-26.
