Limerick Educate Together are crowned Junior Boys All-Ireland Basketball Champions

Yesterday the Limerick Educate Together Secondary School were crowned champions of Ireland in the Basketball Arena in Tallaght.

Limerick Educate Together Secondary School were crowned U15 Junior Boys All-Ireland Champions after defeating St Joseph’s of Rochfordbridge in the decider in Tallaght yesterday.

Their opponents, a school from Westmeath would prove to be very worthy opposition after their performance in the final with Limerick edging the contest 24-21.

The Limerick school were able to stay out in front for the majority of the contest but St Joseph’s kept tight behind with scores to keep the pressure on the leaders.

But at the end of the contest it was Limerick Educate Together Secondary School who were the winners as the final buzzer sounded.

In the end it proved too close for comfort but the three point margin was enough for the Limerick school to head home victorious.

The Junior C boys final was Limerick’s to take home as they were led by a brilliant 17-points from Orhi Artola. 

To help prepare for the game the team had been training all week in the UL sport arena
