The Donegal Town Basketball Club hosted their annual awards night on Sunday 19th May in the St Patrick’s Parish Centre in Donegal Town.
It was brilliant to see the hall packed with blue and yellow jumpers, showing that the sport is alive and well in Donegal Town.
Awards were presented to the Most Valuable Player (MVP) and Most Improved Player (MIP) from each team (see full list of awards below).
The All-Ireland contending U-14 boys were also presented with awards for winning the regional cup and regional league titles, and the U-14b and U-12 boys received their well-deserved medals for winning their respective regional league titles. With such enthusiasm, commitment and talent in the club today, it is no wonder why basketball is thriving once again in Donegal Town and will continue to do so for years to come.
The Donegal Town Basketball Club would like to thank everyone involved in such a successful, enjoyable and memorable season this year – players, parents, volunteers, coaches, managers of all the gyms we use, and our supporters.
