Inter-Schools Basketball League

Scoil Bhríde recently took part in an inter-schools basketball league.   

The first match was against Maryborough School.  This took place in Portlaoise College.  Both teams did really well but we were victorious on the day!  

The second match was against Ballyroan on the 12th of May.  This also took place in Portlaoise College.  Unfortunately the weather was miserable but fortunately this didn’t affect our performance!    It was a close match with both teams playing well but we won in the end! 

We played Holy Family School in our third match on the 15th of May.  This was a very tough game, with both teams on level scores after full time.  The match went to extra time and thankfully we did enough to secure victory!  

On the 26th of May we headed off to St. Mary’s Hall for the semi-finals of the league.  We played the Gaelscoil from Portlaoise.  The boys and girls played really well and won the match.  

We were delighted to reach the Division 1 final.  We were paired against the Holy Family team.  It was a really good game but unfortunately we weren’t strong enough on the day.  Congratulations to the Holy Family on their win!  

Thanks so much to the organisers of the league.  A lot of hard work went into it and we really appreciate it and we really enjoyed it!
