The Year 7 Girls Basketball team went out on the 14th of September to Mill Park Stadium to play against some tough competition. Although many girls had not played basketball outside of school they did exceedingly well against girls who played representative basketball.

The first game was against The Lakes Secondary College and was evenly matched. The girls went out very excited about their first game and quickly got the feel of playing together in a team. After some great shooting by Zoe Groves and Jessie Plant the girls were run away winners 22 to 5.

Some very brave staff participated in the ‘Ice Bucket’ challenge during August, with proceeds going to raise awareness for Motor Neurone Disease and in particular former teacher Mr Reiter, who unfortunately is currently battling with the illness. Many staff and students feel particularly touched by the cause.

These photos show Ms Vine, Mr Bumpstead and Mr Hiho having a bucket of ice water tipped over their heads on a below 15 degree day.

Senior Boys Basketball- NMR

The team played 2 games at Coburg Stadium on 4th August. Their first game was against Northcote where they were very competitive against much bigger players. Playing an up-tempo style and shooting a lot from outside we provided Northcote with some issues. They eventually overcame us and we lost 41-30. The next game was against St Helena. The boys started with a 9-0 lead and that scared St Helena after they comfortably defeated Northcote earlier. The team continued to play extended defence which St Helena had trouble adapting to.
