Promising signs for junior basketball
What an amazing day! Our Junior basketballers got off to a great start in an exciting gala day held at Penrith on Monday 13 November. There was huge amounts of energy and skill displayed by both teams, who both got off to a great start and won their first games.
Our parent coaches did an amazing job warming up and preparing our players for some intense, fast paced action on the courts.
Mr Macarthur was a masterful manager of the boy’s team, leading them to convincing victories in the first three games. A nail biting finish in the
semi finals saw the boys just miss out on making it through to the finals despite their very best efforts.
Mr Barbosa had the girls passing like pros and darting around the court, but the opposition in the following games seemed like giants and no amount of dodging and weaving could stop them! Despite the defeat, the girls soldiered on valiantly and showed tremendous courage.
It was wonderful to witness the positive team spirit and encouraging smiles from our players and parent helpers throughout the day. Many thanks to our fantastic team managers and scorers (the Macarthur family, Mr Barbosa and Mrs Pantano).
