Our u13 girls were crowned League winners yesterday evening, ending the season unbeaten 20-0. They have remained unbeaten for two consecutive seasons now which is a huge achievement.

We played Bantry this evening at home in a double header and came out on top on a scoreline of 55-13. We got off to a terrific start with Rachel Bowdren, Lucie Healy and Grace Maher netting 3 baskets a piece. Ciara Myers and Ella Amayo also posting a basket each. Fast breaks were a joy to watch. We led 22-4.

We played great defense in qtr 2 holding Bantry scoreless with Caoimhe Fraher and Ava Walshe excellent in defense. A brace of baskets from Ellen Price and one from Aisling Coakley left us 28-4 up at halftime.

6 different girls scored in qtr 3 with Lucie, Rachel, Ava, Aisling, Anna and Grace all contributing. Fast break basketball was key to this and has been all season. We led 43-9.

Ella Amayo popped up with a pair in qtr 4 with Ava, Ellen, Caoimhe and Aisling also on the scoresheet.

To date this season, the girls have won the Championship Final, Meteors Invitational Tournament and the League with a Top 4 semi final to come. The coaches are super proud of them.
