Sacred Heart Girls Retain their County Title.
Our Junior Basketball team (2nd years) travelled to Neptune Stadium on Tuesday to compete in the Junior Basketball County Final. Their opponents were Coláiste na Trionóide Youghal. We travelled to Youghal last year to take on the same opposition at the semi final stage and managed to come home with the narrowest of wins. With this in mind our girls knew that our trip to Neptune was going to be no easy task.
A quick start saw Clon race into an early five nil lead thanks to baskets by Katie O'Driscoll and Kate O'Donovan. We maintained our lead with Siofra Patwell controlling much of the second quarter. However the east Cork girls showed they weren't there simply to make up the numbers. They rallied and at half time it was back to a four point game.
At the start of the third quarter a couple of quick baskets moved the lead out to ten points. Though some really determined defence and all round team performance we maintained this lead until the last few minutes when Youghal rallied again. Ultimately it was too little too late and our West Cork girls emerged victorious on a score line of Clonakily 26 Youghal 19.
There were scenes of great excitement at the final buzzer with our travelling supporters congratulating their team. Many thanks to their coach Mr Browne.

Thug an t-amhránaí mór le rá John Spillane cuairt ar Mheánscoil an Chroí Naofa chun Seachtain na Gaeilge a cheiliúradh.
Bhí tráthnóna den scoth againn! Sheinn an grúpa ceoil le John agus ba mhór an chúis bhróid é sin do na cailíní.
Beatha teanga í a labhairt agus ar ndóigh, tá ár dteanga ag dul ó neart go neart fud fad na scoile!
Míle buíochas do John Spillane, na múinteoirí Gaeilge agus Coiste don Ghaelbratach!
Best wishes to Ms. O’ Connell and the TY Junk Kouture students in the regional finals!
