Girls Basketball

On Thursday 19th of March, we had a Yr7/8 and a Yr 9/10 Girls Basketball team compete in the Southside carnival at Tuggeranong stadium.

The girls from both teams showed great sportsmanship and endeavour in all of their games.

The Years 9 and 10 squad consisted of:  Ana Davidovic, Millie Boehm, Georgie Thomson, Rachel Gallagher, Lily Wilson, Jenn McGrath, Courtney Halse and Fatima Ahmed.

The 9/10 girls played 7 games in total.  They played Telopea 1 first (5 vs 24), then Wanniassa (3 vs 11), then Erindale (5 vs 20) and Calwell (14 vs 20) was a very close game.  They then played Alfred Deakin (13-22) and Melrose (4 vs 26) and finally against Telopea 2 (12 vs 22).

9-10 Girls Basketball 2015

Sadly, no wins, swore muscles and great deal learnt about the game of basketball and new many friends made!

The Year 7 and 8 squad consisted of:  Amy Cunningham, Alana Stosik, Hollee Statton and Lucy McMaster and four other teammates.   They were excellently coached by Sarah Jaeson (10).

The 7/8 girls played 5 round robin games.  They played Telopea and won 16 to 4.  Then Namadgi, for another win 32 to 0.  They then defeated Caroline Chisholm 32 to 2 and Melrose 34-4.  The girls then played the highly fancied Alfred Deakin and lost 9 – 14.  After a short break, the girls then went on to play against Alfred Deakin in the playoff of for first and second.  The girls gave it everything but were trailling at half time 6 to 12.  They  just fell short in the end but won the second half.  The final score was 17 to 13.  Well done to the Year 7 and 8 team!  You are now off to the ACT Championships to be held sometime in Term 2.
