On Friday October 27th, seven Greenvale Primary School students attended the Mill Park Stadium to compete in the Northern Metro Region Basketball Championships.
In our pool, the girls got off to a flying starting with a comfortable victory against Bell Street Primary School.
Greenvale then played against a much more evenly matched team from Glen Katherine Primary School in a close and exciting match. The girls were in front by a point with a minute left, by unfortunately relinquished the lead with approximately thirty seconds left, going down by two points.
The team finished second in their pool, therefore having to play against the top team from the other pool, St Martins of Tours. Greenvale kept within three points of St Martins at half time, but fell short in the second half, getting knocked out of the competition in the semi final.
Special thank yous to Ms D’Angelo for coaching and also Jodie and Sharon for supporting our team and assisting on the day.
Well done to the team for all your hard work and sportsmanship. You only fell a couple of wins short, in close matches, of making a state final. You should be extremely proud of your efforts. I look forward to seeing you compete again at Regional Hooptime.
