Senior A 2019-2020

Even though their season was cut short by one game this Senior A team proved to be Dalkey's most successful team of all time. Having won the South Dublin League, Dublin Champions, reached the Semi Final of the All Ireland cup, and qualified for an exciting day out at the All Ireland League final. They were then awarded the Loreto League final when the game was postponed as they had also finished top of that league.

Aisling Marmion (6th year) - Irish Basketball Player
During the summer I was extremely fortunate to participate in the FIBA u17 skills competition. This was an online basketball skills competition in which a number of countries competed in, including the world champions, the USA. It was a replacement for the European Championships that were due to take place earlier in the year. Unfortunately they never took place. However we still were granted the opportunity to represent our country in a different format.
The skills required consisted of the fundamentals of basketball i.e passing, dribbling and shooting. And as always it was a team effort. There were seven people chosen from the current u18 irish team and together we competed against a number of countries including Belarus, Israel, Gibraltar and Poland. I really enjoyed participating in this competition and our team actually did really well! We beat three out of four teams and we were set to progress to the semi-finals but were beaten on the count-back.
It was quite a unique experience to compete virtually but it was fun nonetheless. All of the matches were professionally recorded and were streamed on YouTube. Hopefully the Euros will go ahead next year! But it was still amazing to play for Ireland during a global pandemic that seems to hinder almost everything. I hope people will continue playing the sport they love because I know I will!

The Senior B finished off their year just prior to the schools closing. They came away with a convincing victory over Loreto Bray to claim the Loreto title despite trailing at half time.

The senior C team had a record of 9 wins 1 loss when the schools closed. Their only loss came against a very strong Larkin college team in the Leinster semi final. They remained undefeated in both the Loreto League and South Dublin league and had qualified for both finals. The Loreto championship was awarded to them after finishing top of the league.
