Our 1st Grade Basketball team recently won their Southern SATIS roster, and qualified for the 2019 State SATIS Winter Sport Finals. Marist Regional College did the same in the Northern SATIS competitions which meant we had a lovely five-hour bus trip up to Burnie on the last Wednesday of Term 3.
St Mary’s started really well holding a slight lead going into the third quarter and it was evident that everyone was playing their heart out. Even though the opposition had us beat in height, we kept fighting for every rebound and just as with the hockey, it went down to the wire with Marist managing to hold on to a 39-37 win in the last three seconds of the game. Even though we didn’t end up with the trophy, every player should be immensely proud of their incredible effort and especially in the way they represented St Mary’s College.
A big thank you goes out to all the team coaches and managers. Thank you to basketball coach Robin Rhodes for making the trip up and guiding our girls to a State Final. We also wish to thank all the parents who have done the countless drop-offs and pickups as well as the thousands of hours sitting and supporting at games over the years, without you none of this would be possible.
