DSC 0975During the first week of the school holidays our Premier Basketball Girls Team competed in the National Secondary School Girls Basketball Competition in Palmerston North.

The week got off to a bit of a shaky start with the team’s flights being cancelled the night before and with no other option of making it down in time, the girls flew to Wellington and then drove up to Palmerston North. The whole day was a mad rush to ensure we got there in time for the Opening Ceremony.

The tournament started with a bang and the girls played exceptionally well during pool play to make the Top 8. The team progressed through to the semi-finals where they played against Mt Albert Grammar School, some of the best basketball they have ever played. With everyone on the edge of their seats, it was anyone’s game but eventually the victory went to MAGS. The team fought back the next morning to beat Westlake Girls and finish 3rd in the country.

Congratulations to Elianna Tuaiti and Mele Latu who were named in the Tournament Team.
