Hoop Time Basketball Tournament

On Tuesday 25 October the Boys Years 3 & 4 Basketball team competed at the Regional Hoop Time tournament at the Nunawading Basketball Stadium. The challenge was to make the top 3 of the 15 teams and qualify for the State Hoop Time championships.

The Boys started off brilliantly winning their first 3 games and qualifying for the final. They displayed excellent team work, continually sharing and passing the ball. It was a very even team with all 10 boys contributing and scoring on the day.

They played Langwarrin Primary school in the final and after a nervous start where the scores sat at 3 all for a while. However late in the first half the boys put the pressure, got some steals and quickly got a 10 point break for half time. The team was able to slightly extend that lead in the second half to record a great win, remain undefeated and qualify for the State Hoop Time Basketball championships at Dandenong on November 21st.

Good luck to the team in the State Finals.

The team consisted of:

Year 4: Tyson Nagel, Ben McCleod, Oliver Thomas, Oliver Butera, Indhi O’Sullivan.

Year 3: Izaak Crane, Jeremy Rodgers, Judd Nagel, Zachary Veneziano, Harrison Caddy.
