First Year Basketball Success
Well done to the Convent of Mercy 1st year Basketball team who captured the title of North West league winners on Thursday April 4th. They defeated DVS Drumshanbo, who had previously taken the spoils when the two teams collided a few weeks earlier. A tense opening quarter saw the Roscommon girls edge ahead 4-2, thanks to baskets from Etaine Moran and team captain Jennifer Morris. At the halfway point we led 6-5 with Eadaoin Walsh dribbling through the DVS defence for another well taken 2-pointer. From this point onwards the Convent girls pulled away, with Zara Naqui, Jennifer Morris and Etaine Moran landing a number of excellent baskets. As the buzzer sounded, the scoreline stood at Convent of Mercy 20 - 13 DVS Drumshanbo. All players played an important role in this well deserved win for a group that have been training hard every Thursday evening for the last few months. Congrats to the winning panel, consisting of Etaine Moran, Jennifer Morris, Alison McNamara, Zara Naqui, Gemmisha Geraghty, Olivia Bliss, Katie Mullaney, Michelle Rogers, Lucia Fabbi, Lauren Walsh, Caoimhe Walsh and Eadaoin Walsh.
