Get latest sprint name from Epic stories


Using groovy or scriptrunner, I want to get the latest sprint name that has longest timeline or close at last.

Lets say, EPIC-1 stories are distributed in 3 sprints with different end date.

Epic 1:

-sprint 1 - Timeline: 10-28-2019 to 11-15-2019

--- Story1

--- Story2

-Sprint 2 - TImeline:  11-04-2019 to 11-12-2019

--- Story1

--- Story2

-Sprint 3 - TImeline:  11-04-2019 to 11-29-2019

--- Story1

--- Story2

The script should return "Sprint 3" name. I able to find the sprint name and date value for each sprint but i not sure how to compare date for each sprint and get the latest sprint date.

def lastSprintName =
def lastEndDate = lastSprintByEndDate.endDate

If you don't know what that means, I would suggest you start with
