Blog #4: Cork

The team spent a few days in Cork, where they visited Blarney Castle, the Jameson distillery and also visited the final place the Titanic stopped before its trip across the Atlantic just over 100 years ago. The Skyhawks also played Brunell, a local club team, and won 72-53. Tori Faieta had a great game, dominating the boards and helped seal the game with key buckets. Mary Louise Dixon went 5-for-6 from the field and played well on both ends of the floor. Amy Pelletier also hit from three point range as well.
