Basketball (Term 1, Issue 1 2016)

Written on the 12 April 2016

Open A Girls

The Term 1 season is always a great precursor to the Marist Basketball Carnival which is held in Week 11, Term 1. The team are able to use each round game to practice their skills and teamwork.
It was a very short season with the team only playing 3 games. The most memorable game of the three was the third game when we were down, 18-2. After a timeout was called we went back out onto the court to implement a zone defence. At the same time, Mr Steve Byrne walked in and our work rate went through the roof. By halftime we were down by 8, and at three-quarter time the scores were level at 34-34. The final quarter, and the entire game was an incredible display of what a team can do when everyone is working as hard as they can to achieve a common goal. At the end of the game we were the winners, 45-39. Mr Byrne was a great motivator and we were thankful he attended the game. Overall, our team won two out of three games. We are all looking forward to working together to have a successful Marist Basketball Carnival.

Open B Girls

This season has been somewhat disrupted by long weekends and the heat, so our Open B Girls team have only played two games so far. However, SHC are currently undefeated with two convincing wins. SHC V Nazareth 31-24 and SHC v St Dominic 46-13. We have our final round game on the 2nd April and then we hope to play off for the top position. We are all looking forward to a successful finish! Go Hearts!
