U13 Boys in France .......Tournament
U14 Girls in Sweden at the Gotenberg
The Moycullen U14 girls competed in the Gothenburg Basketball
Festival from the 9th – 12th May 2013 against some of the best teams
in northern Europe. There were 39 teams competing in their age group.
The girls progressed through the group stages with 3 wins and 1 loss,
their defeat coming to the winners of the tournament. The girls dispatched
their opponents Kvarnby BBK in the preliminary round and Hop BBK to
get into the last 8 of the ‘A’ section. Their opponent in the quarter
final was Blackeberg Ekerö, a top Swedish team. The girls battled hard
but unfortunately their opponents were too strong for them and the early
mornings and having played 2 games already that day. It just wasn’t
to be. The girls can be very proud of their performance and have got
great experience from the competition. They can hold their head up high
knowing that they competed with the best and the two teams who beat
them ended up in the final. James and Nollaig did a fantastic job in
coaching the girls. Emer was on hand to give instruction on Diamond.
