There is great excitement around the North Louth Basketball Community as Liby Dynamites Basketball Club U16 girls team represent the North East Basketball Region as league winners and go to The All Ireland Finals in Cork City on the weekend of April 14th and 15th.
Dynamites will play the winners from Dublin and Kilkenny in round one of the Finals and will need to perform at their best to progress to the next stages.
Having gone the season unbeaten this very talented group of players Coached by Coach Orla Brennan and assisted by Coach Kathy O’Neill and Roisin McKenna have developed into a very good team, which, was developed through the Dynamites Academy program over the past four years.
Not only will this team play in the All Ireland Finals but will also travel to Spain as part of the North East Knights Regional Academy u16 team.
In reaching these finals Dynamites played 16 games throughout the season against teams from Monaghan, Meath, Cavan and Louth and will also contest the semi- final of the NEBB Cup on their return from Cork.
“We would like to congratulate all those players who have put in so much effort and time along with their great supporters their parents, for without all their commitment this great occasion would not have been possible. To see so many young people develop under the guidance of our brilliant Coaching staff not only Dynamites under 16 girls who are ranked within the top 12 best teams in Ireland but the development of our under 7 boys and girls right up to our under eighteens “said Dynamites Chairman Pat Campbell.
Dynamites u18 girls, u14 boys, u14 girls and u12 girls are through to the NEBB Cup competitions over the next three weeks and we would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate them on their achievements throughout this season. A Big congratulation must also go to The Ravens u16 team who compete in the Boys section.
