On Tuesday both our Junior 2 (Y9) and Junior 1 (Y10) Girls Basketball teams took on Wellington Girls in the semi finals of the Division 1 and Division 3 competition.
The Junior 2 girls lost 51 – 37 but from speaking to the opposition there was no comparison from the games they played earlier in the season. In the Junior 1 game it was extremely tight with Newlands ahead pretty much all game but it eventually closed up to 63-60. Towards the end Suizannah Kelekolio nailed a 3 pointer and put away a free throw under pressure to ensure the victory.
The Junior 1 Girls now play WEGC 2 on Tuesday at 4.30pm.
Congratulations to coaches Rama and Susie for the work they have done with the teams and congratulations to all the girls.
