Great performance at inaugural CNI Basketball Tournament

St Paul's Collegiate School —

On the final weekend in June, the St Paul’s Premier boys’ basketball team competed in the inaugural CNI Basketball Tournament held in Hastings.

There were eight teams in this year’s tournament: Feilding High School, Lindisfarne College, St John’s College – Hastings A&B teams, St Peter’s School – Cambridge, Te Aute College, Francis Douglas Memorial College and St Paul’s Collegiate School). There were two pools of four, starting with a round robin and then moving into semi-finals and finals.

Game One vs Feilding High School - win to SPC 54-41

Game Two vs St John’s College - win to SPC 43-35

Game Three vs Te Aute College - win to SPC 46-26

Semi-Final vs St Peter’s School - win to SPC 40-38

Final vs Francis Douglas Memorial College - loss to SPC 38-60

Our boys should be very proud of the growth they have had over the duration of the year so far and it is good to see it becoming the tight brotherhood that we had envisioned. They have proven themselves that they are a top league competitor and have a solid chance at being one of the top regional teams.

The competing team consisted of:

Reid Elkington (Captain), Riley Foster, Ryan Phillips, Kent Davidson, Dylan Bartels, Bryan Chap, Blake Ryan, Dylan Smethurst, Mike Hunter, Clay Richardson, Alex Zhong, Matthew Spence, Levi Davidson
