3v3 Basketball

The Open 3v3 Basketball carnival was held last Friday at the Morphett Vale Basketball Stadium. The day was about participation and REC had four teams compete, two boys teams in Division 1, one in Division 2 and a girls team.

The girls performed admirably against teams that have played a lot of basketball before and they improved immensely as the day progressed. It was great to see them take on advice and put it into action on the court.

The Division 2 boys team were all Year 10s and won every game except the final which was against much bigger boys who were in Year 12.

The number 1 team in Division 1 lost two games by 1 point and one by 3 points. The number 2 team won every game including the final against a very loud, vocal and physical opposition team.

The way our students behaved on the court and off the court was commended by the organiser especially against some teams that at times displayed some very poor sportsmanship. Well done to all the REC students who participated with class and dignity and with a high level of skill.
