More Basketball Champs

Well done to the Year 3-4 Basketball team that won their competition at Pioneer tonight. Against bigger and older competition from Somerfield, Mr Harrison’s team showed great composure to keep posession and shoot baskets when it mattered. A real total team effort saw a well deserved victory – well done boys!
