NACBs Milwaukee Hurling Club

Labor Day Weekend always brings an end to the Milwaukee Hurling Club's season, but we don't bow out quietly! This year at the North American County Boards in Cleveland Ohio three MHC teams (Men's Jr B Elite, Men's Jr C, and Women's Jr Camogie) packed their bags and headed east for a weekend of competition and hurling.

Matches were hard fought and the Jr C team came out ahead winning the national title! Way to go boys! Everyone at the MHC was proud to be a part of this national championship.

The shot below is of the "catch of the year" as we've all been calling it. Liam O'Neill, the President of the GAA, said it's the best catch he's ever seen in a hurling match. And if you can imagine, he's seen a lot of hurling. As he was presenting the trophy to the Jr C team he also said something I'll never forget, "Hurling is for anyone who wants to be a part of it." That's the MHC model. We are a family and we work hard together. If you want to be a part of it we'll welcome you with open arms.

Congratulations once again to the Jr C team! You all deserve it!

The Jr Camogie squad is where I played during the weekend full of hurling. Our first match was against Atlanta. They were a skilled batch of hurlers and they controlled the ball most of the game.

I always have a blast playing with my camogie girls, it's just a shame we couldn't pull out a win this year. Watch out NACBs 2014 the MHC Camogie girls are coming for you!

The girls were fast and furious and we had a hard time keeping up with them. We also need to work a lot on our block downs. They kept winning the ball by blocking it down in front of them. They knew where they had directed the ball so they could beat us to it every time.

These girls are some of my favorite people in the whole world. Here we are as KT tape models. We're going to have a contract someday because we all use it for different injuries! The KT tape camogie quad!

I can't wait to see what next year brings. I'm sad to see this summer end, but I'm glad I got to finish it out with the Milwaukee Hurling Club battling it out for a national championship!
