Ireland University National Tournament

April 8th, 2016 | Uncategorized


The excitement of playing in the Ireland varsity national tournament for the first time, being in the same place with all of my victory scholar family, and enjoying the beautiful city of Galway for an entire weekend was at an all time high as I arrived.  The hotel was beautiful and the Wi-Fi was working! This trip was the second time that we have all been together since Thanksgiving so I definitely enjoyed that.  I definitely created some amazing memories that I will remember forever from the games, partying, and just team fun all weekend. Although we fell short of our goal to win the college championship the trip was a good one.  I enjoyed seeing my fellow victory scholars play with their University team and watching everyone compete.  The tournament made me feel like I was back in college in America with all of the cheering and team spirit floating around the gym.  I would like to thank our coaches Patrick O’Neil and Niall McDermott for all that they have done for me and this years university team.  I would also like to give a big thank you to Aimee Shiels for being the greatest team manager over the weekend.  Last but not least I would like to thank the Ulster University faculty, staff, and students for all of their support.  Ulster University has provided one of the greatest educational and athletic opportunities that I have ever had.  I am truly thankful that I was able to be apart of such a great tournament with an amazing University.  “To God Be The Glory”
