ST. MARY'S College, Ballisodare, will be on the trail of All-Ireland glory this afternoon when they take on Colaiste Pobail Setanta from Dublin in the Under 19 C Basketball Schools Cup final at the National Basketball Arena, Tallaght.
The Ballisodare boys reached the decider thanks to a thrilling 60-44 victory over Dublin school, PS Neasain.
Three years ago, St. Mary's won the national title at Cadette level and three members of that squad will be in action in the Under 19 final today.
Led by captain, Oliver Brockmann, the St. Mary's squad includes Tobias Brockmann, Dominikysas Kutra, Lee Sherlock, Karolis Gunka, Oliver Janowski, Conor Lynch, Conor Healy, Joseph McGowan, Enda O'Halloran and Robbie Buchannon.
Ballisodare College won bronze medals in the Cadette Schools Cup. They put up an heroic performance in their semi-final clash and were unlucky to lose by just six points.
