Intermediate Boys Basketball
The intermediate boys basketball team travelled to Coburg Stadium to contest the Moonee Valley championships. The team had convincing wins through their round matches and found themselves against Buckley Park in the final. The team came back from a half-time deficit to lead with minutes in the game to go. Unfortunately, Buckley Park scored successive baskets to wrestle back the lead and finish the victors. The team should be proud of how they approached their preparation and the way they conducted themselves on the day, well done.
Yr 7 & 8 Boys Basketball
On Friday the 15th of September, close to 50 junior basketball students packed the bus to represent Strathmore at the Moonee Valley playoffs. The Year 7 A team made their way to the grand final on the day after Tom Sayers sank two foul shots after the final buzzer in the last round game to win the match. Unfortunately, the team weren’t able to defeat EKC in the final and their winning run was ended. The Year 8 A team went into the competition missing several players due to injury. However, they were undefeated in the round matches and made the grand final. The boys trailed at half-time in the final, but overcame the deficit and just as the final buzzer sounded scored a basket to equalise the match and send the game into overtime. After a see-sawing affair in extra time, the team defeated their opponents and advanced to the Western Metro Championships. Congratulations.
