On Friday 4 September, our selected Year 6 girls and boys basketball teams competed in the Slam Series Basketball Carnival, held at the Geographe Leisure Centre in Busselton.
This is the second year the Slam Series has been held in Busselton, and this year saw many more schools competing than previous years. Both MacKillop teams this year were undefeated throughout the day, and winners of their grand final matches in convincing fashion. This was fantastic, and was evidence of a massive team effort. Passing was great, as was their team spirit.
Results were as follows:
|vs GMAS A Win 21-2||vs West Busselton Win 34-2|
|vs Cornerstone Win 19-0||vs GMAS A Win 53-2|
|Semi Final vs Duns Primary Win 30-6||vs Cornerstone Win 26-3|
|Grand Final vs GMAS A Win 16-9||Semi Final vs GMAS B Win 26-8|
|Grand Final vs Duns Primary Win 22-14|
Well done to the following players who gave 150% all day, with impressive results, and should be extremely proud of their achievements.
