Our Year 8 Basketball team made it through to the State Final held at MSAC on Monday 14th November. They played three games that were all very close, they won one and lost two. The standard of play was outstanding by all members of the team.
The girls had a successful day of improvement, fun and great team work. Their first game was against Maribyrnong Sports Academy. The girls put in a hard battle and defended really well against some very tall players but unfortunately they lost by eight points. Their second game was against Lavalla Catholic College from Traralgon. Again they played really well, moved the ball around the court and scored well. Unfortunately they lost by four points. Lavalla ended up winning the Year 8 Basketball State flag in the final against Bendigo. MGSC played Templestowe College in our third game and won by four points. All eight players should be congratulated on their efforts. The team consisted of April Brake, Mikala Clarke, Maddy Geist, Uma Miles-McCabe, Paige Price, Marion Scully, Sanju Suresh and Daisy Walker.
A big thanks to Barry McCabe for coaching the girls on the day.
