Hoops4Health Finals

Hoops4Health Finals

One of our Year 5 teams progressed from the main group stage of the Hoops4Health programme competition and reached the Newcastle Finals on Friday night. The team played their semi-final on the Newcastle Eagles court before their main game at 7.30pm. It was an evenly contested match against a local middle school -a great achievement for a school our size to compete so well against a larger sized school. St. Teresa’s scored two baskets, meaning we were 4-0 up with only a few minutes remaining. Unfortunately, we were pinned back in our half for the last couple of minutes and the pressure paid off for the opposition as they scored two late baskets, meaning the match ended in a 4-4 draw.

A shoot-out followed and St. Teresa’s were unfortunate to lose out on a place in the final. The whole squad should be very proud of each other. Mrs Mackenzie and Mr Turner are certainly pleased with their effort, determination, as well as their sportsmanship.
