What’s All the Hoopla About?

Well, it is about Coach Eoin ‘Noctor J’ and his basketballers, both Junior and Senior School versions, shaking things up on the Irish Schools Basketball scene.  We have had the pleasure of attending four different SDBL and Dublin U19 and U16 Finals and our First and Second Year teams are following in their ‘eurosteps’ with Second Years winning a thriller recently in OT and then a close, quality loss by 3 points in the Dublin Plate Final.  First Years had a respectable close loss to perennial power Pres.-Bray and are into the SDBL play-off ladder.  But most impressive of all was the Junior School’s team victory over Castlepark earlier in the season and then close loss to the same team in the AIJS Tournament Final.  We have been going to this tournament for years and this was by far our best finish.  Just wait till the new extension is built and we have a full-sized basketball court on which to practice.  The boys and girls will be leaping to new heights and shooting out the lights!
