Lincoln Zone Basketball Tournament 2020 Year 7/8
On Tuesday 21 July the Year 7 and 8 basketball boys competed in the Lincoln Zone Basketball Tournament at Ararira Springs School.
The first game was against Little River where the boys quickly took a commanding lead. During the 2nd half they let the Little River team have opportunities to score some points and have fun. I am very proud of them for doing this.
Their 2nd game was against the home team Ararira. Like the first game, they took the lead early and eased off during the end. The children all understood that this was being very sportsmanlike.
Their 3rd game was against Prebbleton Boys. This team had numbers and size over our team but Halswell school was up to the challenge. Prebbleton took an early lead but our boys worked together and had an amazing comeback to win by 4.
Our final game was against Lincoln. They had also won 3 games so this was the Final! Our boys worked tremendously well during this game but unfortunately Lincoln was too good for us this day.
The Halswell boys were gracious in defeat and left with their heads held high.
