Mainland Basketball Championship
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.
Rugby Sevens Nunweek Park
On Tuesday, a team of 11 boys travelled to Nunweek Park to compete in an Intermediate Rugby 7s tournament. The boys had not played 7s together previously, and so took a little while to find their form, losing their first game to Ashburton by a small margin. In the second game against Casebrook Intermediate, the boys won and this gave them confidence for their upcoming game against Heaton which they were anxious about. Although they lost this game, they showed great grit and tenacity. Christchurch South Intermediate Sevens team came third overall.
