The Teresian Junior School hosted its first Basketball Ireland tournament on Tuesday May 22nd. There were 5 schools attending and the day was a resounding success. The tournament was for Classes 4 and 5 and the schools were from all over Dublin. There was some great basketball played by all the schools and the children enjoyed the day enormously. The final was a local derby between us and St Mary’s of Donnybrook. It was a nail biting affair, but unfortunately we came up short coming in as runner-up. Our 2nd team finished 3rd overall. All in all it was a great experience for all involved and hopefully will instill a love of the sport in many more girls.
