Congratulations to Sonja Taylor and her year 7/8 B Grade Girls who have come Runners-Up in the Wednesday Night Tamworth School’s Competition.
Taking on Manilla in their Grand Final encounter the Quirindi Girls were in the game early and matched Manilla point for point for the majority of the first half. Unfortunately Manilla put together a superb second half with some great ball movement to secure a great win.
To Quirindi’s credit the girls fought to the end and did have opportunities but failed to capitalise on the board. All the girls performed well although we must give a special mention to Shelby Porter who was a standout for Quirindi throughout the finals.
Despite the loss it’s still a great achievement for the girls with just 3 players actually being in year 7 at High School and the rest of the team consisting of Primary School Students.
The Girls and Quirindi Basketball would like to thank Sonja Taylor who has done a fantastic job with the team this season.
Quirindi had 5 other teams competing in the term 1-2 Competition and despite most performing well through the competition they all exited the finals early. Our year 11-12 Boys and year 9-10 A grade Boys missed out on qualifying for the semi’s whilst our year 9-10 Girls, 7-8 Boys and 7-8 A grade Girls were all eliminated in their semi-final clashes.
The Term 1-2 Competition also marks the end of an era with Terry Beresford calling it a day after 12 years of running teams in the Tamworth Schools competition representing both Quirindi Basketball and Quirindi High School. Our trusty Bus Driver/Coach Simon Roxborough is also calling it a day after 6 years of service which Quirindi Basketball has truly appreciated.
Things may look bad Basketballers but do not stress as coach Matt Parsons plans on being around for many years to come. Although we will not be running teams in the term 3-4 competition Matt and Quirindi Basketball are working on plans to inject back into the Tamworth School’s competition for the term 1-2 competition in 2017 with assistance from Quirindi High School.
