GISSA Interschool Basketball Championships
Our College was represented at the 2017 GISSA Basketball Championships by our Year 9 and 10 basketballers, who acquitted themselves very well against the competing schools.
All players are to be congratulated on their skill and efforts at these Championships. Our boys and Girls teams were very competitive, with both our Boys A and Girls Teams qualifying for the Championship Playoffs against Kardinia IC.
Our Boys won a very close and competitive game, 16-12, while the Girls were equally competitive against a strong Kardinia line-up, losing their game 24-15. Our second Boys team played some excellent basketball in their round robin tournament, only losing the one game to eventual Champion, St Ignatius College.
Congratulations to Alaina Peacock from the Bellarine Campus for achieving MVP for her team.
We thank the Coaches (Nic Owusu, Shayna Poto and Elliot Kelly) for their efforts in trialling and coaching our teams. The College is very appreciative of the efforts and enthusiasm from each of these students, and we look forward to their contribution next year in our Interschool basketball program.
