On Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd of October, 2 South basketball teams participated in the CAIMs Indoor Tournament held at Pioneer Stadium. We also had a volleyball team and a badminton team participate in the tournament.
Our girls basketball team performed exceptionally well and were well supported and coached by Kathy Burrows. The girls showcased some wonderful grit, determination and hustle and finished 3rd overall. 
The boys basketball team played some wonderful team basketball over the two days and we’re brilliantly led by coach Devon Watson. Our boys were able to demonstrate their skills and ability throughout the tournament and found themselves in the final against Heaton. Unfortunately, it was not to be and our boys went down against a much larger Heaton team. 
Thank you to our two wonderful coaches, all the parents that came down to support, and of course, our South basketballers who represented our school beautifully.
Meanwhile across town, our badminton players represented themselves extremely well in a tough competition and finished 3rd equal overall.
Our volleyballers had to travel to Lincoln to take on their competition. Achieving 4th place overall is a pretty incredible effort, especially when you consider that many of our players and never played competitive volleyball before!
