Crumlin basketball

On Monday 22nd February Loreto College Crumlin Road claimed the U19C girls Basketball All Ireland trophy. All five of the starting players got on the score-sheet in Crumlin’s 33-27 win over St. Aidan’s from Cork.

It was a very exciting day for Loreto Crumlin as the whole school travelled to the arena in Tallaght to support their team. St Aidan’s battled well and were only four points behind heading into the final quarter.

A 10-0 run by Crumlin proved crucial and despite some late pressure from St. Aidan’s, Loreto emerged victorious to the delight of their supporters.

Congratulations to the girls and their coach Darren McGuiness.
