Dear Carncot Basketball fans,
The Carncot basketball team’s successful season has just drawn to a close. The team suffered a narrow loss to Mana Tamariki in the final of Pool 2. It was a hard fought game, however, and a fitting end to a season full of successes. After careful canvassing, here are the Top Ten Highlights from the basketball season:
- Full-on games of basketball being played on the outdoor courts for the first time in years
- Shareef’s steal and coast-to-coast basket against Mana Tamariki in the final
- Super-intense games of Knock-Out during practices.
- Receiving medals from Manawatu Jet, Miles Pearce.
- Jack Jones’ amazing no-look, globetrotter-style, backward-flick pass to Thomas for the lay-up.
- Improved dribbling, shooting, passing and defending skills.
- Players’ development from the first game to the final was plain to see.
- Wisdom, guidance and encouragement from team coach and guru, Paul McDonald.
- Teamwork, teamwork, teamwork. We became one of the best passing teams in the competition.
- Come from behind win in the semi-final against PNACS to make the finals.
and the season’s top highlight is…
representing Carncot School in such a positive way.
Conratulations to all nine players and coach on such a wonderful season. Well done, and bring on 2016!
