As part of the High School EActive program the Emanuel Open boys basketball team has been competing in both a Wednesday and Sunday opens competition through Easts Basketball League. These competitions are both very strong and the boys are playing against other school teams as well as men’s social teams. After the round stages of the Sunday competition, the Emanuel Tigers finished in second place and progressed to the semi final. They had a convincing win of 47-30 over ‘the Lions’ in this game and have now advanced to the grand final. I wish them the best of luck this weekend.
The Emanuel Intermediate boys basketball team have competed in the 16 years Easts Basketball League competition this term. Although they have unfortunately not progressed to the finals series, they have made exceptional improvements in their skill and teamwork this term. Well done to Joel Aaron, Greg Allen, Jared Elbourne, Oliver Evans, Matthew Joffe, Noah Klein and Joshua New on a great season.
Our most recent addition to the basketball program was the introduction of the 14 years boys team. This team consists of Years 7 and 8 students who have developed well as a team this term. After an impressive first season they finished in first place after the round stages. They will play in the final this weekend and I also wish them the best of luck.
