What a great 2 days of basketball we have just had. Sutherland Engadine combined zone had a hard fought tournament and our girls finished 4th overall and our boys 3rd overall. The competition was tight and both our teams put in 100%.
A big thank you to parents from our zone that stepped up and assisted on the bench (scoring) after having the high school students withdraw their assistance at the last minute. They were professional, courteous and represented our zone impeccably. Thank you to Sutherland District Basketball for providing facilities and referees for the 2 days.
Thank you to Lachlan from Engadine zone for all his hard work with both the girls and boys teams while I was engaged in my role for Sydney East. I have had extremely positive feedback from a number of parents about how much of a fantastic job he did both days.
The competition was very strong and although we had a few players each day make it to the final rounds of selection (Top 15) we had 2 players from Sutherland / Engadine zone make the Sydney East Basketball team.
Congratulations to Ava W from Jannali East Public School and Logan S from Yarrawarrah Public School on your selection to the Sydney East Teams. Best of luck at NSW State Championships next term.
Combine zone basketball team
We had 42 boys, and 20 girls attend. It was an extremely hot day trialing outside, but a massive thank you to Gymea Technology High School for not only providing us with the 2 courts and a shaded area for the students to rest, but also for providing some year 12 students to assist with refereeing and the running of the morning.
The competition from both boys and girls was very strong and after much deliberation we are pleased to announce the teams.
