Up first sees u16 D final between St. Paul's Community College and Vocational School New Ross both teams meet in the group stages with New Ross coming out on top by 2 pts so another close encounter is expected.

This is followed by the match of Our Lady of Lourdes New Ross v Presentation Ballingarry in the U19 C final. This is Ballingarry's first ever school final whereas New Ross have been absent for a few years from this stage. Ballingarry had a two-point overtime win over Ramsrgrange in the semi with New Ross overcoming presentation Wexford by eight points. Both teams will be eager to put their stamp on the day.

Up next sees two teams competing in U19 and U16 B finals. There is great development work going in Scoil Ruain as they only got promoted from C grade last year and to get the two finals so no small feat. De La Salle Bagnesltown are no strangers to this stage of the competition winning the U16 title last year. They boost former U16 international Amy Dooley in their ranks and will be hard to stop but Scoil Ruain will be no pushover so one can expect a fierce battle between theses two ultra competitive sides.

The last game of the day sees St. Brigid's Callan take on Bridgetown of Wexford in the U16 C final. St. Brigid's hold the accolade of being new to this competition after only taking up basketball last year, showing how much progress has been made. Bridgetown have been competing for many years under the fine stewardship of Osnat Manning and will be eager to go into the All-Ireland Playoffs with a win.
