The Scoil Chriost Ri Basketball team are heading to Crete, Greece for the World Schools Championships this week and on Thursday night the 2019 team faced-off against past students from the 1999 & 2001 teams that travelled to the World Championships.

The game was played on Thursday night in the Nagle Rice Sports Centre and featured the current crop heading to Crete, along  with players from the team that travelled to Israel in 1999 and Turkey in 2001 - and of course Head Coach Pat Critchley was in attendance too.

The game was played in high spirits with the team from '99 & '01 running out victors by the narrowest of margins on a scoreline of 54 - 53.
