Year 8 Girls' Basketball

On Thursday 19 October I had the pleasure of coaching the Year 8 girls' basketball! Overall we had a very successful day finishing in second.

In the first game against Thornbury, the girls showed lots of effort, dedication and persistence to get the ball. Although they had a slow start we won by 25 points.

The second game was against Melbourne Girls College. Our students dominated the court and played with good sportsmanship and patience, making sure to include all team mates. The girls took out this game by 30.

The third game went by in a flash with yet another win! The girls' talent was put on full display and everyone hit the scoreboard with a 20 point win against Veiwbank.

After a great day of success we made it to the grand final where we spent most of the game in front. We had multiple girls in foul trouble and a lot of worked out legs, but the girls left their hearts on the court and put in so much effort. Unfortunately we lost in the last 20 seconds when Aitken scored a goal to put them in front, taking the win.

I am very proud of the girls and all the effort they put in. I witnessed the girls improve, grow in confidence and learn something new, and can happily say I was very impressed by the amazing teamwork and courage shown throughout the day.
