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.


Southside Basketball Tournament

On the 13th of March our junior and senior boys basketball teams played in the Southside High Schools Basketball Tournament. There was a lot of players vying for positions on this years teams. The chosen teams did not disappoint the selectors.

The senior boys won physical contests against Telopea 22 – 16 and Wanniassa 49 – 3. They had close games against one of the finalists Lanyon High 15 – 17; Lanyon went onto play the winners of the senior boys basketball Calwell High School.

The junior boys won against Wanniassa 10 – 3, Lanyon 21 – 7 and Calwell 17 – 14. Their two losses were close games against Deakin 11 – 17 and Telopea 15 – 22.

Both teams were a credit to Stromlo High school and their families with their maturity and a commitment to do their best for Stromlo High.

On the 27th of March the girls teams had their chance to compete, and they did not disappoint in their efforts. Both the junior and senior girls teams won their first three games with both teams narrowly missing out getting into the finals. Both teams came third in their respective competitions.

The coaching and managing staff/students would like to congratulate the players on their conduct and their committed efforts.
