Scoil Chriost Ri have been crowned Midlands/South East Regional First Year A Basketball champions.

They now take part in the All-Ireland tournament in UL on the May Bank Holiday weekend.

Meanwhile, the Second Year A team lost their Regional semi-final away to Bower Athlone.

While the 1st and 2nd Year B and C teams finished their season with a very enjoyable tournament in Pres Thurles.
