Today, the TPPS boys and girls participated in the Templestowe District basketball day at Templestowe Leisure Centre.
The girls were up first in the morning and played well as a team to register hard fought wins against Milgate, Warrandyte, Templestowe Heights and Our Lady of the Pines. The girls improved over the course of the day and went in to the grand final with plenty of momentum, however, it was not enough to defeat Serpell, coming short by five points. Regardless, this was enough for them to leave the tournament as Runners-Up, a fantastic result!
After the girls' successful morning, it was the boys opportunity to take the court. The boys displayed great teamwork and sportsmanship, registering wins against Warrandyte and Templestowe Heights, however, Milgate, Our Lady of the Pines and Serpell were too good on the day. It was a fantastic afternoon of high quality basketball and the boys should be very proud of their efforts, finishing equal third in the tournament.
This is the end of the road for the 2016 TPPS Boys Baketball Team, however, the girls are still alive in the Hoop Time competition and will be participating in their Regional Finals this Wednesday 12th October. Good luck girls!
