Congratulations to 1st Year basketballers Anna McCourt, Eve Murphy and Niamh Purtill, who have been selected for the U14 Midlands Basketball Academy 2021-22. The girls, who play in the point and shooting guard positions, attended trials on Tuesday, October 26th in Clonaslee where they got to show selectors their skills in a series of 3v3, 4v4 and 5v5 scrimmages. The girls and their coaches, in school and Athlone Basketball Club were thrilled to hear the good news that they had made the panel of 28 for the forthcoming season. They travelled back to Clonaslee on Sunday, November 7th for their first 3-hour team training session. We are very proud of each of the girls and can’t wait to see them represent the Bower when the 1st Year season kicks off in the coming months. Well done girls.
