This past weekend was the Irish National Cup Final. I made my way down to the National Basketball Arena in Dublin to do the next best thing from actually playing in a championship game- watch a fellow scholar do her thing out of the court in one. I was one of a handful of scholars who came to Dublin to show out for our very own Rita who played for the Division I championship with the Galway Mystics!
Rita’s game wasn’t the only championship on Sunday, so my ticket went a long way and bought me a lot of exciting championship basketball. Meg, Emily, Jazmen and Kelsey hung out in the stands the whole afternoon watching game after game. We all play for different teams around the country, but we were all Galway fans on Sunday. We cheered for the Mystics with the rest of the fans that came to support.
But the main event of course was the Mystics v Oblate, and Galway dominated! It was fun to watch how well Rita’s team played together to and win the cup. Rita certainly represented for the Scholars and SCL, dominating in the post and cleaning up the boards like no one’s business.
Congrats Rita on a Cup well deserved!!
