Basketball Finals Success!
Basketball Finals Success!
First of all, congratulations to all students who were involved in the Pacific Basketball season this year. It was easily one of the most successful seasons for our College in what is the biggest competition in Queensland. The standard of play and commitment of all students was truly wonderful and there were some great, competitive matches every week. Even those teams that had limited success on the ladder improved their game and gave their best each and every week.
It has been wonderful to see the progression of skill and enthusiasm for basketball grow over the past six years. This couldn’t have happened without a range of people’s time and efforts. I would personally like to thank Mrs Tanya Graves, Mr Scott Crompton and Mr Nico Prinsloo for their tireless efforts with various teams, the junior program, player development and willingness to help at all levels. Our Friday coaches were also fantastic, so thank you to all who helped throughout the season, including Mrs Michi Hauser, Lance Hurdle, Matt Lint, Bailey Pointon, Mr Nico Prinsloo, Mitch Turner, Brayden Moor, Mrs Tanya Graves, Mr Scott Crompton and Hayden Warburton.
To all the players – well done to each of you. It was a long season, but very worthwhile. We are only just starting to reach our potential and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve in 2017!
Last Friday night, Pacific was recognised as the third most successful school in the whole competition (one point behind second and only five points behind winning the Champion School trophy, which is only one more top of the table placing). This is a great achievement for the College and one we should all be very proud of.
Congratulations to the Junior B Boys and Intermediate B Boys for winning premierships in very tough games. The Senior C Girls fought valiantly against a very physical Siena Catholic College team and their attitude was very impressive. They carried themselves with poise and represented the College well.
A big congratulations to the Junior A Girls, for being the first team in our history to win an A Division premiership in a Sunshine Coast School Sport competition. This means that they are the number one team in their age group on the entire Sunshine Coast, which is a huge achievement. It was a long time coming after two previous finals appearances, however they won very convincingly and thoroughly deserved their accolades. Thank you to Mrs Tanya Graves for coaching them this season.
Finally, thank you to the parents for your support and involvement in driving children to venues, late nights, score-bench duties, extra training sessions and a whole range of sacrifices throughout the season.
All players will be required to return their playing uniforms to Mrs Natalie Campbell by the end of next week.
