Basketballers Close Call for Finals

With the basketball competition stealing the show after last night’s opening ceremony, the players have taken to the court again today to battle it out for a spot in the semi-finals and finals that will take place on Sunday.

With Friday night lights showcasing that all academies had a tough line of competition ahead of them in order to gain a position in the finals, Saturday was no different.

The round-robin tournament consists of both a girls and boys competition, with each academy fighting for pole position in Sunday’s competition.

Both the girls and boys divisions made sure that taking away a victory from each game would be no easy feat, with the majority of games running down to the wire.

However, at the end of the day there was a clear winner for both the boys and girls. For the girls, it was Western Region Academy of Sport (WRAS) who came away undefeated and are looking like solid contenders to take out the ClubsNSW Academy Games basketball competition tomorrow.

In both the boys and girls competition it was the Northern Inland Academy that came out on top of Day 1, as they enter into the semi finals. Both the boys and girls divisions are looking like incredibly fierce opponents. However, they won’t have an easy run for the final spot, as they play some equally tough academies tomorrow.

All of tomorrows boys games will be starting at 9:20am at the Scholastic Sports Stadium.

All of tomorrows girls games will be starting at 8am, again at the Scholastic Sports Stadium.

With a huge good luck to all academies and teams competing in the semi-finals and finals tomorrow and cannot wait to see the tough competition that will be brought to the courts.
