Basketball team wins their division

Congratulations to Mandy Li, Ursula King, Rachnaa Kumar, Jemma Hillman, Jo Caroccia, Zoe Schwerkolt and Zara Wotherspoon who won their division at the GSV Senior Basketball Tournament in June.

The team was focused from the very beginning of the day and started their campaign with a victory over PLC. In the second round, they showed superior confidence against Lauriston and finished the match well ahead. It was a different story in the third round as Firbank posed a serious challenge to our defence. To the girls credit they hung tough and won the match by 5 points. In the fourth round, the girls played flawlessly and proved they were up to the challenges posed by Genazzano. The match was tight and required accurate shooting to maintain pressure on our opponents. The fifth and final round saw us compete against Shelford. The game was extremely tight and unfortunately, we lost by the narrowest of margins: 1 point. This result placed us even on four wins and one loss with both Shelford and Genazzano. During the presentations, it was revealed that we had a superior percentage and the girls were awarded first place.
