On wednesday 30 March, our 9 chosen students from Year 11 competed in a series of matches for a basketball tournament. These students were Louis, Will, Luke, Alfie, Issac, Josh, Adam, Korbin and Corey.
Their first match of the tournament was against Christ the King and, despite losing 7-0, their morale was kept high and their drive for victory was still strong.
Their second match proved that they were still determined to win by having a close and nail biting victory over Ryde with a score of 8-6. Our scorers were Korbin, Corey, Adam and Alfie all scoring 2 points each.
After a short break, the team went head on against Carisbrooke for their third match. Once again the team shone as a group and won an 8-4 game which boosted them up to second place. Our scorers for match three were Will, Issac, Korbin and Corey each, once again, scoring 2 points each.
After two victories, their fourth game was unfortunately a loss to Sandown. The team tried their very best but only scored 2 points against the opposing team leaving them with a 6-2 defeat. Our only scorer for that match was Luke.
The team tried their very best to win the competition. After valiant attempts at going for gold, they unfortunately came 3rd. Nevertheless, they were an outstanding team and made the school proud. They showed great communication and team work and, despite being under huge amounts of pressure, they kept their cool and made the top 3. Well done boys!
