This year, for the first time ever, our school created girls and boys basketball team. It started off with trials, from which a few people were selected. We trained a few days a week and after school. Our first few matches didn’t go the best but we won one of our matches.
Then we were on to the final in the National Basketball Arena. We trained extremely hard, every single lunch break and after school in preparation. On the actual day of the finals we had all of 4th, 5th and 6th classes behind us. And….both the boys and the girl’s teams won on the day. They were very tight games with both teams only winning by a couple of points.
We are still thrilled over the result and cannot thank Ms. McCarthy, Mr. Whelan and Ms. Lester and Ms. Doody enough for giving up their free time to get us where we are now!!
