Happy New Year to all our members. As we head into Semester 2 and what is known as the business end of the season, we wanted to briefly re-cap on Semester 1.
We started off the year with a fantastic intake of members we currently have 230+ members. We knew with these numbers we would need more courts and potentially teams. So in the Woman's we have the senior D1 and Fresher Team. In the Men's we have a team in D1, D2 & D3 with Freshers as well.
All games were played in the first half of the year with a few big hitters left or Semester 2. Currently the Men are top of the League table. The Ladies are second with a game in hand. The Men's The Men's D3 are currently top of the table as well so all in all a great Semester 1.
Our Social basketball (Just want to "play" group) has grown massively. We have social basketball three nights a week with phenomenal numbers. We have a number of Club people doing the table for us
We have some fantastic people coaching in the club this year. Niall McDermott has taken over the D1 Men, Danny Mooney has moved up to take on the D2 team from D3 last year. Mike Sheehan is coaching the D3 team. Jordan Hehir is coaching the D1 Woman. All doing a superb job with the squads of players.
This year UL Wolves attended the First ever 3x3 competition and we were the only college to have three teams at the event. We have two men's teams and a woman's team. All the teams preformed well with the woman's and one men's team reaching the final. Worth nothing that it the UL team that reached the final knocked out the other UL Team. A good day .. LOL
The Second semester will bring a host of competition and events for the club. We have the Fresher Tournament in Feb and that is here in UL, we have the League Semi finals and Finals hopefully. Then the big one - The Intervarsities in April where it all happens - Three full days of basketball with over 30 teams to start. If you are a basketball fan this is where you want to be.
Chat to you all in Jan ..
