  • Friday 8 April 2022 Sports Update Congratulations to the Junior Girls Basketball team who won their Leinster League Final against Nord Anglia. It was an intense game that saw women of the match Charlene Sone Lenou man mark various players and hold a strong defence alongside Captain Jane Gleeson. Nord Anglia had three club players, but they were no match for offensive baskets and rebounds from Alice Gardiner, Liz Fitzpatrick and Lila Harrison. Every member on the team fought extremely hard after a tight first and second quarter with a narrow lead going into the third quarter. Eva McCraith and Neve Molloy played tremendous roles as point guards which secured victory towards the third and final quarters. Nord Anglia fought back in the final minutes but neither team faltered in their efforts to win the game. Their coach is incredibly proud of each player and it goes without question that they have trained tirelessly over the last few months. Special mention to Iona Wu and Mia Sorohan in first year who were pivotal players
