OBHS Senior A basketball team

OBHS basketballers #2 in the South Island!


Our Senior A basketball team finished runners-up at the South Island Secondary Schools’ tournament, losing to Christchurch Boys’ High School in the final on Saturday night.

Otago Boys’ has been one of the most successful schools at the tournament historically, finishing in the top six for the past 14 consecutive years. By doing so they have qualified for the national tournament in the upcoming school holidays. 

This year’s team beat Burnside High School in the quarter-final and Christ’s College in the semi-final to earn their place in the final. 

 A young team of mostly Year 11 and 12 players, the boys have been ably coached by Gavin Briggs and Brent Matehaere and played well as a team against highly-rated opposition.
