Munster level. They look forward to playing for Munster in the Inter-provincial competition which will be held in Dublin in February. From this competition, scouts will
pick players for the Irish National Soccer Team. We wish the boys every success.
The Scoil Chormaic girls basketball team travelled to Tralee on Wednesday 23rd October to take part in the Munster Basketball Blitz. A Junior Tean (U-16) and a Novice
team participated. For some of these students, it was their first time taking part in this blitz.
The Novice team played four matches ans showed great skill. The Junior team played three matches and reached the final against Tralee. It was a thrilling game and
very close. Tralee emerged the winners. The girls will now qualify for the All-Ireland Blitz in Dublin next March. A fantastic day was had by all.
The Most Valuable Player Award went to Megan for the Novice team and to Maria for the Junior team.
