Today TPPS girls and boys teams played in the Templestowe District Basketball Tournament.
Firstly, the girls breezed through their pool games, defeating Warrandyte (24-0), Serpell (12-0) and Milgate (16-2), earning a place in the Semi-Final. After an easier start to the day, they faced a very strong Templestowe Heights team and had to work hard for a 10-7 victory. In the Grand Final the girls were far too strong for OLOP, winning 16-3 and setting up a Division Final against Doncaster Gardens to be played next week.
The boys headed into the afternoon with a tough road ahead of them, being undersized and undermanned in comparison to many of their competitors. To their credit, they managed to take it to every team they played against winning two pool games (11-4 against Warrandyte and 9-7 against Milgate) and losing one (10-13 against Serpell) to earn a spot in the Semi Final. Unfortunately the boys fell two points short against OLOP bringing their day to an end.
