Inter-School Sport – Middle School Basketball

Jul 25, 2022

by Sharon Francis & James Rippingale, Sports Teachers

A sensational day was held on Friday 22nd July with our Middle School Basketball students representing our school. The Boys A Basketball side won through to the next level which was fantastic. Our B Boys Basketball finished second, playing off in the B group final. Our Girls A team lost one game only during the day to finish second and our Girls B team won the round robin set up for their team, so overall the results were very pleasing.

A special mention goes out to the Boys A Basketball team who beat Lilydale High school in their first game by just 1 point and then played off against Upper Yarra in the Grand Final. We were down by 2 points with approximately 20 seconds left to play. Jake Angus took an amazing 3 point shot which he nailed, which meant we were up by 1 point. Upper Yarra had 15 seconds to bring it back down the court to score but we managed to regain possession and hold it until the buzzer. The result was incredible and great coaching by Rippa. A big congrats to everyone for representing our school so well.
