Interclass Basketball 2009
PRIMARY INTERCLASS BASKETBALL 2009 TIPS OFF WITH A SWISH
Our first competitive class event of the year was the Interclass basketball. Earlier in the week the students had participated in the Aquathlon setting and achieving personal goals. This time they were working as a team going for class glory!
The first year group underway were the year 6’s. The girls’ competition was action packed and fast paced. Lynn Tan in 6H showed great positioning and defending but the clear winners were 6B girls scoring 14 points in their matches. In the other competition 6S were also clear winners scoring a massive 12 points. In the first mixed competition 6G displayed fantastic teamwork and passing skills. Fifi Tantipanichaphan 6B, although the smallest on the court rebounded amazingly well. Arnav Mahajan 6H and Jorik Withouck 6G had a great head to head tussle, with many baskets being scored between them. The last match of the boys’ second competition was a nail biter that went to extra time. Many shots went up but we didn’t hear that swish until Samriddh Kothari 6G finally put one up and scored.
Year 4 basketball was underway on Thursday. 4M boys were the team to beat and the championship went down to the final seconds as Kevin Hsieh 4M, calm under pressure, sunk the winning basket just as the ref’s whistle was being blown. In the mixed competition Ethan Carr 4M and Prabhav Kumar 4E stood out with their very impressive defending. The girls’ competition was evenly matched. The teachers were impressed with the quality of the passing and the movement that the girls’ displayed. Charlotte Jones and Rhea Poonevala in 4K showed very good decision making skills and good defence.
Friday was Basketball madness with the year 3’s, year 5’s Interclass AND the Patana invitational! 3P completed our first clean sweep by winning all three categories. Stand outs were Earn Wonghirundacha 3M, Gemma Coutts 3P and Jessica Dooley 3W who showed great spatial awareness, movement and passing skills. The Year 5 matches were all extremely close showing tremendous depth. Girls who performed very well were Tigerlily Perry and Natasha Van Es in 5B and Ella Glanville from 5R. Xak Sen 5R, Denis Sprenger 5J, Jack Hickey 5N and Robbie Hines 5J were impressive in their on-court movement and shooting skills.
Well done to all students and to Khun Patcharee, Miss Gibson, Mr Chris and Mr Tatam for preparing the students in their PE lessons. Thank you to all of the Mum’s and Dad’s for their support and a big shout out to the swim team for helping to referee and timekeep.
