Both the Senior Boys’ team and the Senior Girls’ team won their grand finals last night (Monday 3 July) at the Moonah Sports Centre. The students showed a remarkable ability to rise to the challenge in a sport which many had not previously played. They also show dedication and commitment by training and playing during exam week.

The boys were undefeated for the season and it was a delight to watch their antics on the court. Their finals win was exceptional in that they had only four players on the court for the entire match.

The girls displayed fantastic comradery and adaptability on the court.
