Basketball: 2nd Year Girls

Our team began it’s practice in September 2013, we had practice on every Tuesday, after Christmas, it was Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We started our school league in January. We played a variety of teams from Dublin, and won our group by winning all our games. Winning our group led us to qualify for the East Regional semi finals against Muckross Park, which we won. Up next was the East Regional finals against Woodlands Academy.
Our Final was at the Oblate Hall Inchicore, and after a close hard fought game, we beat Woodlands by just 1 basket, 40-38! This meant we were through to the All Ireland regional tournament. These games against teams from Wexford, Louth and Laois, the tournament was held in Mount Temple. We won all three games, and this meant we qualified for the All Ireland semi finals, which was played in University of Limerick on May 9th.
We travelled over to Limerick on Thursday May 8th, stayed overnight there and arrived early to watch the 1st year girls play in their semi final and finals. 1st years lost their final, we were scheduled to play Gort Community School in the semi-finals in Limerick minutes after the 1st year finals! We got off to a very good start, and maintained a healthy lead in the 1st half. In the 2nd half, Gort kept the game close and the game got tighter going into the final quarter. Gort got closer, but couldn’t take the lead in the end, and we won 26-24! Only 1 hour later, we played Woodlands Academy in the final, whom we also played in our Dublin final. Game was tense throughout. The lead changed hands throughout the game, there were a lot of opportunities for both teams to take command of the game, but the nerves were affecting both teams. At the end were again able to beat Woodlands, this time winning by 1 point, by a score of 27-26, and meaning we were crowned the All Ireland champions!

Basketball: 1st Year girls-All Ireland finalists

It all started at the Mount temple basketball camp in August 2013. We began by introducing each other and meeting Praha for the first time. We started the week off by doing some simple activities and playing some matches near the end of the week. The basketball camp was a great way to meet new friends and teammates. For our first session there was a great turnout of girls who wanted to be part of the team. Over the next few weeks we progressed and learned new skills so by Jan we were fully prepared to begin our school league. Travelling to matches with the 2nd years brought us closer as a team we had great fun supporting and learning from the 2nd years playing. Throughout the month Praha not only taught us how to be a great basketball team but also how to have respect for players and coaches. After a few months our confidence grew and so did our skills, which lead to us winning the first year East Regional final over Mount Anville. Winning this league qualified us to participate in the All Ireland’s 2014. The All Ireland Regional tournament was held in Kildare on April 8th. In a four team tournament, we played our 3 quarter final games against St Vincent, Bunclody and Kildare Community School. We won all three quarter final games to move on to the semi final in Limerick . We trained hard coming up to the semi final. A week before Praha surprised us with the news we were going to stay overnight in a hotel before the game in limerick, this made us even more excited. Just as we thought it couldn’t get any better, Praha told us that we were getting Mount Temple track suits. On Thursday 8th May we left the school for Limerick , the bus journey was about 2.5 hours (or the length of a string !!!). When we arrived at the hotel we went swimming and we had a great night. The whole trip brought us closer as a team. The next day was our semi final and the nerves kicked in. We won this game by only one basket, 26-24 and we were so happy. An hour later we played the Final which unfortunately we lost by a few baskets. Not only did we learn new basketball skills throughout the year, but we made great new friends and had such a fun year. By Lea Clerkin and Niamh HenshawP1070010
