Last Saturday, Canberra Girls Grammar School had two teams compete in their respective basketball finals.
Our U14 Division 4 team entered their grand final undefeated for the 2017 season – and it was nail-biter against Tuggeranong Vikings. Despite multiple lead changes throughout the game, our courageous U14 girls ended up down by 3 points (18-15).
Shortly afterwards, the U12 Division 2 girls competed in a hard-fought game right to the very end but unfortunately went down to Tuggeranong Vikings 21-9.
In spite of coming away with silver, both these teams represented the very best of CGGS basketball. I was delighted to present medals to the girls in my capacity at a Canberra Capitals Academy player (and coincidently, a proud Year 11 student at CGGS).
I would like to congratulate all the girls on a hard-fought season that saw them achieve great results. A big thank you to all the parents and friends as well as Mr Milligan who came out to support the teams in their games. We look forward to another great season next year.
