On Wednesday the 3rd of August our school competed in the SAPSASA SYP Zone Basketball Carnival held at the Minlaton Basketball Stadium. Teams were represented by Minlaton District, Curramulka Primary, Warooka/St Columbus and Maitland Lutheran Schools.
Maitland AS had four competing teams consisting of a Year 5/6 girls team coached by Ella Davey, a Year 5/6 boys team coached by Paul Linke, a Year 6/7 girls team coached by Naomi Davey and a Year 6/7 boys team coached by Marie Wheare.
As always our students were great ambassadors for our school with and impressed with their endeavour and competitive effort. Our two boys teams achieved some fantastic results with our Year 5/6 Boys defeating the Maitland Lutheran School in their final game to become SYP zone champions and our Year 6/7 team finishing the carnival undefeated and advancing to the next stage of competition later in the term.
A huge thank you goes out to our generous and kind parents for all they do to make events like this possible.
A special mention must go to our coaches once again, our umpires Nick Polkinghorne, Jess Davies, Sally Davey and Janine Burrows, our scorers, those parents who assisted with transport and all our enthusiastic supporters.
Thank you all!
