Claire Melia playing international basketball

Best of luck to 3rd year student Claire Melia who is currently playing for the Irish u16 basketball team in the European Championships in Macedonia. They have beaten Scotland and Bulgaria. They narrowly lost to Slovenia the favourites last night 77-71 but if they beat the Ukraine tonight they get to the quarter finals. Unheard of in Irish underage basketball. Claire has had double doubles (well over 10 points and 10 rebounds) and has top scored in every game. In her last game she finished with 25 pts,14 rebounds,4 assists,3 steals and 5 blocks.
