Knockout Basketball - Open A Girls (Issue 3 2018) Sport
Written on the 31 May 2018
Round 1 of the State-Wide Knockout Open Girls Basketball saw SHC line up against Immanuel College. The girls were buoyed by the home court advantage and thrived on the support from their peers. SHC held their ground against a dominant Immanuel side.
The attack was fierce from Immanuel and the Hearts tried numerous defensive approaches to shut them down. Tanner Morris and Jorja Rowsell made their presence known under the ring pulling in numerous rebounds. Chelsea Giles and Halle Njoroge pushed the ball up the court with confidence and created numerous scoring opportunities, however, the Immanuel side was too strong for SHC and will progress through to Round 2 of the competition.
This brings the Girls Open A Basketball competition to an end for season 2018 under coach Ali Trewartha, as she takes time off to welcome her first child. The team will re-group in Term 3 for one last game against Assumption College Kilmore as part of the 2018 exchange.
