What a day we had in Limerick! Our Girls advanced from the very difficult pool stages to reach the last eight at the National Finals. This was a fantastic achievement from our team who displayed such courage, determination and never say die attitude throughout the day. To say we are very proud of their efforts is almost an understatement.

We qualified with three victories from three in our group before unfortunately going down to Glenville NS from Cork in a gripping Quarter Final on count back after the game ended one set each. The girls played so well collectively throughout despite often being up against taller and physically stronger teams. They should be delighted with how well they performed and it certainly was no disgrace to be beaten by an excellent team.

As always a short word of thanks to Geraldine Finn who coached our team and year on year puts so much into Spikeball in our school. We are so fortunate to have her expertise, enthusiasm and support always. We really appreciate her work with us throughout this past year.

Well done again to all the players involved this year. It was fantastic to watch this progression and improvement as our year unfolded. Our teams this year were excellent role models for our younger students who hopefully in time will continue this great tradition we have in our school.
