Scoil Pól receive new Basketball Jerseys


Tremendous Success for Scoil Pól in Basketball 

On Monday 4th April, Scoil Pól’s u16 and u19 Boys Basketball teams played the South West Regional Final. It was a tremendous achievement for both age groups to be represented in both finals and a first for Scoil Pól. The u16 team played the Abbey from Tipperary Town and the u19 team played St Anne’s Community College, Killaloe.

Both teams would like to thank St Anne’s for hosting both finals in their school. The boys put on outstanding performances in both finals and Scoil Pól are extremely proud of their dedication, determination and focus, not just in these games but all year. Many thanks to Ms Kelly McHugh and Ms Niamh Masterson for coaching the boys throughout the year. They said: “It has been a pleasure to work with the boys this year and incredible to get to this stage of the competition. We have been building this team since some of these boys were in 1st year and it’s great to see them do well.”

Panel for u19 vs St Annes: Liam Fitzgerald (co-captain), Philip Fleckinger (co-captain), Jacopo Mengucci, Darryl Lonergan, Blake O’Doherty, Jimmy Crowe, Keane Costello, James Philpot, Robbie O’Keeffe, George Castano Diaz, James Sheahan, Daithi Dennehy.

Success has not been confined to the boys this year, as Scoil Pól launched its first girls basketball teams this year. Scoil Pól entered the girls in u16, 2nd and 1st year competitions and the girls have progressed really well throughout the year, with games still to play! All boys and girls are welcomed to join basketball in Scoil Pól and we look forward to having another successful season next year.
