Girls Basketball (Issue 2 2018 Sport)
Written on the 12 April 2018
SHC fielded 3 girls Basketball teams this term. Our fabulous teams were A grade coached by Ali Trewartha, B Blue coached by Sarah Turnbull and B White coached by John Cadd. The A grade have had a very successful season with a grand final play off match against Mercedes College. SHC gave it their all in defence but their efforts were not rewarded with shooting accuracy letting them down. Mercedes made the most of our inaccuracy and finished off their attacks well. Despite their frustrations, the team kept fighting to the very last minute.
The team now look forward to their next challenge. The team head to Marist College Canberra for the Marist Basketball Championships. Both boys and girls teams head off on Sunday 15 April for 6 days of competition against 22 Marist schools from around Australia. We congratulate Tanner Morris selected at Captain and Chelsea Giles as Vice Captain. We wish both the girls and boys all the best.
As usual the B grade competition started with the SHC derby match both teams playing each other in a mid week clash. SHC B Blue came out on top with a 12 point win. Both teams had their ups and downs this season with a series of injuries wreaking havoc on the SHC B white team. With only 5 teams in the competition it was clear Cabra's and Cardijn's first sides were going to dominate the competition. We finished the season with a play-off for 3rd. Again it was SHC v SHC but this time it was a much closer game. With scores tied for most of the last quarter it was SHC B Blue who came out on top winning by 5 points. A great game to finish off the season.
Congratulations to all teams who tried their hardest every week and were excellent representatives of the College. Thank you to our coaches Ali, John and Sarah who put in many hours to ensure their teams had the best opportunity to play the best they can.
