BASKETBALL

 

We have a long tradition in Basketball here in Jesus and Mary, Salerno.
Salerno fielded 5 different teams in the 2016/2017 school year.

  • 1st year
  • 2nd year
  • U15
  • U16
  • U19

This gave all students the opportunity to play for their school. It was a very successful year with both 1st and 2nd year teams coming through regional finals and making it to the all Ireland play offs. Our u19s made it to the All Ireland semi-finals held in Tallaght and our 15B cup team won their All Ireland final. The U15s had a great day out along with all the second years as supporters They played both their Semi-final and Final on the same day in the National Basketball Arena Tallaght. This great win brings our whole school up to the ‘A’ division for the 2017/2018 season.

Training took place at lunch time and after school in the Aras this year with no home advantage games. Next year all trainings and home games will be in our new sports hall. Looking forward to the year ahead. Best of luck girls.
