CGSAV Junior Basketball

On Thursday 18 April, our junior students travelled up to Melbourne to compete in the Junior Basketball competition against Catholic girl’s colleges from around Victoria. All teams showed great skill, teamwork and encouragement throughout the day. The Junior A team finished 3rd in a tight Semi-Final game, going down by 3 points. The Junior B team took out the Grand Final to win overall. Well done to Maja Prusac who won best on court in the Grand Final game.

Thank you to the coaches on the day - staff Kara Shuttleworth, Kylie Lane and Tyler Reid our trainee.

Here are some reports from players and coaches from each team:

Junior A:

It was an early morning to get up to Melbourne in time for round one. All students were buzzing at the start, with some experiencing secondary school sport for the first time. The program was jam packed with 6 x 30-minute games, plus finals throughout the day. The Junior A team started off strong and demonstrated teamwork, sportsmanship and great basketball ability. They all ran and ran and ran to win the first six games and finished on top of the ladder. When they got to the semi-final, unfortunately, the team lost by three points. – Kara Shuttleworth

Junior B:

Today SHC students travelled to Melbourne via a bus to compete in a series of basketball games against other schools. My team played really well – rebounds, passes, and shooting. In the end our team made it to the grand final and took the win. Overall, it was a fun day with success at the end. - Madeline Kennedy
