Olympic Handball

Recently our boys and girls u11 Olympic handball teams competed in an Olympic handball tournament in Killanin hall. We had two boys and two girls teams competing on the day. All four teams put in a tremendous effort and each one of them made it to the semi finals on the day. The girls teams were very unlucky not to make it to the next stage after narrow defeats in both semi finals. Both boys teams competed very well also but had mixed results in the semis. One team lost narrowly while the other team progressed to the next round with a brilliant victory.

The boys team that qualified got another day out in Cappagh hall where they competed against more teams from around Galway. Again they put in a tremendous effort and won two group games and drew the third one leaving us in a semi final against Belclare. The game went all the way to extra time and we were unfortunate to lose by a single goal in the end.

Everyone seemed to really enjoy the Olympic handball tournaments and they competed very well against various schools from all over Galway. Each child played really well and they should be very proud of their efforts.
