Knockout Basketball (Issue 7 2018) Sport
Written on the 11 December 2018
On Thursday 15 November, without Halle (in America for Basketball) but with the addition of Annalise and Llewelyn (Year 9) the team took on Nazareth, Henley and Tenison Woods in the finals series. The series consisted of 5 matches, 3 minor rounds, a semi-final and a grand final. After finishing 3rd in the minor rounds, the team found form defeating Nazareth to move through to the Grand Final. A very talented Tenison Woods team were challenged all the way by our girls but we just couldn't bridge the 5 point gap created at the start of the game to really put some heat on them. The final result saw Sacred Heart defeated by 8 points. I am very proud of the team and their achievement despite having very little opportunities to play together. They displayed great heart and character befitting of a Sacred Heart team.
Thank-you to Laura Breeding who coached the team so wonderfully and brought the team together so effortlessly. Thank-you to Alex and Gavin for their support during the finals.
