Basketball team wins their division

23 June 2017

Spurred on by our success at the Senior Basketball tournament last year, our talented team of Year 11 & 12 basketballers took to the court to play four tightly contested matches to win the Division three GSV Basketball competition. We recorded a perfect result that included four wins in which we defeated Toorak College, Mentone Girls’ Grammar, PLC and Firbank to claim the overall pennant.

The team consisting of Annie Rehe, Natalie Jaman-Hogan, Elena Boyce, Miranda Croci, Anushri Kumar, Lea Skliris and Didi Crock played a fast and attacking style of game with everyone contributing to scoring points. The girls were thrilled by the result and were very proud to have represented their School.

On another note, Zoe Johnson in Year 6 ran at the SSV Regional Cross Country event on Tuesday. She finished in eighth place earning her the chance to race at the State event next month. Zoe will be running against the best runners from across Victoria and it’s very exciting to have Fintona represented at this event.
