On Wednesday the 21st of November, our 5th and 6th Classes competed in the Basketball Finals in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght. We had both players and spectators at the event – here’s what they had to say:
Player – Kitty Burke
The team was very excited but also nervous. As the bus drove through the gates, we got more and more excited. When we got into the arena, we sae all the other teams playing, and they were really good. We took our seats and watched 6th Class play, they came 2nd! Soon enough it was our turn. All of the team were super nervous but once we stepped onto the court there was no turning back. We played an amazing match against Our Lady of Good Council and we came 2nd! We got a medal and it was a great day!
Spectator – Maria Lucini Garrido
We were all very excited and we cheered all the time. All the teams were great, and we were just as good. We watched 6th class play, and they came 2nd. 5th Class played half an hour later and they came 2nd too. It was a great day!
