Well done to the girls basketball team for winning the Tallaght Community Garda Tournament on Monday Aprill 11th at the national Basketball Arena.

The girls put in a huge effort and won four games in a row in the day. Tallaght were victorious over St Marks Community School, Killenarden Community School and Jobstown before eventually meeting St Aidans in the final. Over the course of the day Nicole Casey and Eibhlinn Breen racked up the points for TCS. Abiola Busari and Roxanne Lechert were superb on defence throughout the tournament.

The girls had a tough game in the final against St Aidans but they worked very hard with Jenny Keogh and Rachel Crowley claiming excellent baskets to win the game by four points. The girls were delighted to bring the cup back to TCS.

TCS was represented by: Rachel Crowley, Abiola Busari, Eibhlinn Breen, Roxanne Lechert, Nicole Casey, Jenny Keogh, Katie Dunne, Sarah O'Neill, Ornella Manzona, Angelika Palka, and Roisín Condon.

TCS' Team Fury

Team Fury 


Reynolds Logistics become title sponsor for Team Fury

After progressing through to the National Finals, Team Fury were met with a challenging goal - to bring their team to a world standard on a tight timescale. Faced with only one month between the finals they set off with their eyes on the prize. The first thing the team did was re-design their car, the main goal was to reduce the weight while keeping our aerodynamics. This was not going to be an easy task, the team decided to visit the regional finals in Limerick the following week to pick up on tips and ideas. While in Limerick we picked up on plenty of tips, the best return of the day was securing the sponsorship of Munster Motorsport.
