Congratulations to Jordan Onuzuruike from Sixth Class who recently had trials for the Cork Under 14 Basketball team. Best of luck Jordan.
2013/2014 has been a very busy time for our basketball squad. St. Columba’s was invited to participate in the inaugural cross city basketball competition by Mayfield Gardaí who organised the tournament. The tournament was held in Neptune Stadium. A valiant effort was made by our wonderful team of 10 players.
Our second basketball blitz tournament which was also held in Neptune, was run by Cispheil na mBunscoil. Over 4,000 primary school children have taken part in Cispheil na mBunscoil since the programme was established.This tournament acts as an introduction to basketball for primary schools in Cork in a formal event and has proved very successful.
Training took place on Friday afternoons after school prior to each tournament. Our squad for for 2013/2014 is as follows:
Adam Cuddy, Adam Cantwell, Jordan Onuzuruike, Niall Hartnet, Andrew Egan, Dylan Buckley, Andrew Cotter, Cian Duggan, Adam Kanza, Destiny Okonkwo, Seán Nyhan, Eamonn Kiely and Clinton Ogundero.
