Gothenburg Basketball Festival 9th - 12th May 2013
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.
The team, coaches, manger & parents would like to thank Hynes Engineering and Boston Scientific for their generous sponsorship. It was much appreciated.
