On Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st of August, two South basketball teams participated in the brand new Mainland Basketball Championship tournament held at Cowles Stadium. Both teams played brilliant team basketball and showcased some wonderful skills.
The girls had a slow start on Tuesday, dropping their first two games. However, they came out firing on Wednesday and ended up finishing 4th place. The girls played very well as a team and were well coached and supported by Kathy Burrows.
The boys started off strongly and went through pool play undefeated, playing some beautiful team basketball. Our boys faced off against a large Casebrook team in the semi final. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be and the boys went down 55-50. The boys then faced off against Te Waka Una School in the 3rd and 4th playoff and beat them convincingly to finish 3rd overall. The boys gelled very well as a team and were well led by Devon Watson.
