On Friday 31/1 our U11 basketball teams competed in the Ryde Primary Schools U11 Basketball Competition at Ryde School.
The A team made a blistering start winning 24-0 in their first game and scored an amazing 54 points and conceded only 14 points in their group games. In the game against Haylands they narrowly lost 12-11 to come second in the group and qualify for the semi finals where they played against Ryde School. This was a fantastic game which went to a golden basket to decide the winners. Greenmount won the game to face Haylands in the final. Haylands ran out the winners. However both teams now qualify for the island finals later this term.
The B team also got off to a fantastic start with a 7-2 win and scored 27 points and conceded 22 points over their group games and lost only to the group winners Ryde School 10-6. They also qualified for the semi finals where they met Haylands who won the game to face Greenmount A in the finals. Our B team played Ryde School in the playoff for 3rd place but lost the game to finish a very creditable 4th overall.
