Eoin Nagle (Y10) and Daniel Leggett (Y9) have been selected to play for the Northern Ireland U14 Basketball team in a tournament in Scotland during the first weekend in June.

U14 Basketball

Both players are key members of various teams within the school and were on the Florida basketball tour in October of last year.  Eoin is also a member of Belfast Star, the club that has dominated the local basketball scene for the last number of seasons and this year won all seven competitions they entered.  Daniel plays his basketball at Queens and was instrumental in the defeat of OLSPCK in the league semi final a few weeks ago.

In June, the boys will play against the Scotland and England national teams as well as a top Spanish club side.  Later in the year, they will also play in the inter-regional competition for NI.

This is a great achievement for both players and continues the long tradition of Aquinas players gaining representative honours at provincial and international level.  Mr McAufield is very confident that both players should make their respective Irish squads next year.
