U16 Boys Basketball into ALL-IRELAND FINAL!

Mount Saint Michael Boys progress to All-Ireland FINAL!

Mount Saint Michael Under 16 and Under 19 boys basketballers have reached the All-Ireland semi-final of the Schools Cup in an impressive journey on route to this achievement. Playing some exciting basketball, both teams have proven their worth against very strong opposition. On this Thursday January 10th in Neptune Stadium, the Under 16s boys will play Knockbeg College and the Under 19s will play Waterpark College. This is a superb achievement reaching this level and it is hoped there will be further success.

The Under 16 boys have already defeated Baltinglass and near neighbours Skibbereen, on their way to the semi-final. Both were very tough hard-fought games. They will be back into action on Sunday 13th where they face Casteltroy and Tyrellstown in the All-Ireland quarter finals of the League. The Under 19s had good wins over Baltinglass and Knockbeg College on their journey to the semi-final.

Coach Mike Keohane says: “We are really looking forward to the semi-finals in January. We have trained hard and the boys have put in huge effort and commitment to training. It is also a very impressive achievement considering our boys do not play Club basketball we are delighted with their achievement to date and whatever happens in the semi-finals, both teams have done themselves and the school proud.” Also, involved in training the Under 19 Boys team this year is teacher Michelle Liston who says: “This team have been a great group to work with and I have learned a lot myself also. I’m really looking forward to the semi-final and hopefully seeing all our trainings and efforts come to fruition.”

School Principal Bart Kerrisk says “We are very proud of all the sporting success we have had in our school, this year and down through the years. This year so far, both our boys and girls footballers have reaching the Munster semi-finals, which is a huge achievement. The fact that both our Under 19 boys and Under 16 boys have reached All-Ireland semifinal in Basketball is superb. Our girls basketballers reached All-Ireland stages also this year and are playing in Waterford this week, so we are delighted with this success. Mount Saint Michael values all our extra-curricular activities as valuable forms of learning. We are very proud of all or students and wish both the boys and girls every success in their competitions.”

WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THE Under 16s WON THEIR MATCH AND WILL NOW CONTEST THE ALL-IRELAND FINAL SHORTLY!
